"Astounding...Fast-moving, Intriguing...James Michener is back in huge, familiar form with MEXICO."

LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS

Here is the story of an American journalist who travels to Mexico to report on the upcoming duel between two great matadors, but who is ultimately swept up in the dramatic story of his Mexican ancestors. From the brutality and brilliance of the ancients, to the iron fist of the invading Spaniards, to the modern-day Mexicans battling through dust and bloodshed to build a nation upon the ashes of revolution, James Michener weaves it all into an epic human story that ranks with the best of his beloved, bestselling novels.

About the Author

James A. Michener was one of the world’s most popular writers, the author of more than forty books of fiction and nonfiction, including the Pulitzer Prize–winning Tales of the South Pacific, the bestselling novels The Source, Hawaii, Alaska, Chesapeake, Centennial, Texas, Caribbean, and Caravans, and the memoir The World Is My Home. Michener served on the advisory council to NASA and the International Broadcast Board, which oversees the Voice of America. Among dozens of awards and honors, he received America’s highest civilian award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, in 1977, and an award from the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities in 1983 for his commitment to art in America. Michener died in 1997 at the age of ninety.

As usual, this book is another manifestation of James Michener's skill in weaving together history and fiction. Unfortunately, this falls short of his other endeavors like Caribbean, Hawaii, Tales of the South Pacific etc.

The fictional storyline is about bullfighting. Now, if you are interested in bullfighting, this might be enjoyable, but to most of us, it's a big bore. Unfortunately, in this book, there was a lot more about bullfighting than about history.
