Mexico's Colonial Heart
This is the only book of its kind--a guide for people who drive in Mexico. Readers who fly & rent cars will benefit just as much as those who drive from the border. More than a guidebook, this volume has detailed directions that take the reader by the hand & direct him, mile by mile, through the heartland of Mexico. Coupled with unique maps of every major town he'll encounter & photographs to excite his interest, the reader can use this to plan his trip before he leaves. Armchair travelers will buy it for the collection of humorous & poignant anecdotes by the author that give the reader a true feel for what it's like to travel "real" Mexico. The author's expertise has been recognized by: WALL STREET JOURNAL, NY TIMES, WASHINGTON POST, AP, US NEWS & WORLD REPORT, TEXAS MONTHLY & more. He's the media spokesperson for Mexico's surface tourism program & has lived in or traveled Mexico for more than 20 years. He has done extensive radio, TV & print interviews & in-store signings to promote his other book, MEXICO FROM THE DRIVER'S SEAT & has an aggressive plan to do the same for this one.

MEXICOS COLONIAL HEART -NOP/88User Review - Book Verdict
The author, a lively character who bills himself as "Mexico" Mike, writes guidebook material for Sanborn, the company that insures so many foreign drivers in Mexico. His book covers inland central Mexico, including Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Guanajuato. It begins with general advice on driving in Mexico (avoid night driving because donkeys don't have taillights) and downplays its frustrations and risks. The majority of the book consists of detailed logs of routes noting directions and sights by milepost, and there are some recommendations for restaurants and lodging. Nelson's writing is amusing and personal, though some readers may weary of his tales of ex-wives and alcoholism. A great book to have on the dashboard and a good library planning tool as well, this supplements the standard travel guidebooks on Mexico.--Harold M. Otness, Southern Oregon State Coll. Lib., Ashland
