Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Revised and updated, this collection of the best literature on life and travel in Mexico includes contributions by Carlos Fuentes, Alice Adams, Pete Hamill, Mary Morris, and Kate Simon. Maps. "One of the five best travel books of the year".--"San Francisco Examiner".

Synopsis:

“Melting pot,” a phrase inevitably associated with the United States, may be even more applicable to Mexico, where ancient civilizations merge with modern cultures in a cross-current of peoples, languages and dialects, art and music, religions, hidden cosmologies, and fabled ruins. Travelers Tales Mexico explores this deep diversity in essays by important writers who have experienced it firsthand. On his journey south of the border, Carlos Fuentes reveals layer upon layer of history in Mexico Citys town square; Alice Adams discovers her love for Frida Kahlos work; Pete Hamill unearths the ghosts of Hollywood in Puerto Vallarta; and Mary Morris moves to San Miguel to find a writers life. Travelers Tales Mexico is a lyrical reminder of why its both a pleasure and a necessity to visit this magnificent country.
