Delightful book Nov. 30 2013
By Famed Girl Archaeologist - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a delightful little book that will be a perfect read for someone visiting the Lake Chapala area of Mexico. The travellers' tales date between 1530 and 1910, so don't expect recent history or comment on the present condition of the area as a home to thousands of U.S. and Canadian ex-pats and retirees. Do expect some interesting insights and wonderful descriptions of the area. Burton has done a great job of adding introductions and explanatory comments on the entries. I lived on Lake chapala in the mid-1960s during the time that I was carrying out an archaeological project for my doctoral dissertation. I have carried the beauty of the place in my heart for 40 years. I recommend this little book.

Must Read for those wanting to know the context April 16 2012
By Stephen C. Iman - Published on
Format: Paperback
What a fine effort for those struggling to put Lake Chapala into some kind of perspective. It's a fascinating place for those who see it, and a popular destination for American retirees looking for a grand place to park. What this book does so well is to sort through history to put the current spot into some sort of context for the visitor. The author/editor clips bits and pieces from the first observations in print, and even provides some context for understanding the area's role in the history of a struggling nation. It's a thorough collection of bits in print providing nice perspective from indian chiefs and friars to rebellious pursuers of national independence and entrepreneurs aiming (and often failing) with versions of 'development'. Charming book for those interested in the area.
