MexicoBook - 2001
"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 City's town square; Alice Adams discovers her love for Frida Kahlo's work; Pete Hamill unearths the ghosts of Hollywood in Puerto Vallarta; and Mary Morris moves to San Miguel to find a writer's life. Travelers' Tales Mexico is a lyrical reminder of why it's both a pleasure and a necessity to visit this magnificent country.
