  • About the Edition

    With prose as stripped down and unforgiving as the Chihuahua Desert itself, this novel is at once a gritty historical adventure, a haunting story of relationships and love, and a story that dares to confront the reader with unanswerable questions. American miner Frank Holloway, reluctant witness to the Mexican Revolution, searches for answers about responsibility through his relationships ranging from a young doctor to an enigmatic woman to Pancho Villa himself. Though set in a time and place where even an impromptu piano recital has life or death consequences, Frank is no different than anyone else; he must shoulder the heavy burden of even the most unforeseen consequences, even when the result is love.
