it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read in January, 2004

I am going to back up the platonic life mate on this one with the five star rating.

This book is what got me into non-fiction/investigative writing/research as a genre. This was one of the "required" reading books on Nicaragua when we were in the Peace Corps, only it was uber difficult to find a copy. It was worth the wait - probably one of the best books on Central American history and Nicaragua, ever. Kinzer automatically rushed to my list of must-read authors after the first chaper - if he wrote it, I'll read it. Had Kinzer written my high school history books, I would have paid MUCH more attention in Ms. Daugherty's freshman history class, that is certain.
