I really enjoyed this book. So often South America has been neglected in the news/media, often overshadowed by the plight and atrocities happening in the Middle East, Balkans, and Africa. Gerry Hadden writes a beautiful, raw, honest, and unbiased recollection of his time covering the elections in Haiti, his time in Mexico, and reporting for NPR all over Latin America. I appreciate the honestly with which he wrote this book, and the detail with which he described certain life events, his thoughts and feelings, and some of the characters. Once I got into the book, I really had a hard time wanting to put it down. I hope he writes many more books in the future. I appreciate the pictures (although not enough!) he added as an insert in the middle of the book. I wish he had included more! I highly recommend this book.
