Excellent historical novel about a people's revolution. Best book I have read that I also wrote! These people still need support. They provide medical and educational support for people otherwise forgotten.

This novel is a slam-bang, hackneyed adventure story that focuses on a boring protagonist and stilted characterizations that are shallow and lacking any kind of soul. Bailey writes a simple novel for simple people more akin to a TV movie than an actual five-star novel. Lame one-liners abound in what passes for dialog and Bailey's descriptive ability provides little atmosphere as he keeps the plot speeding on so you don't actually think about what actually motivates these characters. Short chapters are often a symptom of poor writing (there are 30 in 180 pages of story) because the author has precious little substance to actually communicate to us about the situations which the characters are involved.

Bottom line: a regular old dime-store novel that is not a timeless classic worthy of five stars.

I bought Zapatista by mistake, thinking that it was a chronology of the Zapatista rebellion, and found myself engaged in a fasinating fiction about an American writer and his adventures in Chiapas, Mexico. I've studied the Zapatista struggle and have visited the area and I can say this story is historically accurate and I can vouch for some of the geographic detail. This author did his homework.

This book is an adventure, a wild ride, a plane crash to avoid a forced military landing, grab the bags of money and run. A tale of a person displaced, going on a vacation and end up killing for a cause. If you have ever been an occasional traveler in Mexico this book throws out a whole new twist, while teaching you some history about the Chiapas Indians and the Zapatista movement.
