Chiringa Incorporated, 2010 - 330 pages
There is a small god-forsaken truck-stop between El Paso and Chihuahua in Mexico called El Sueco - The Swede. The name was given by Pancho Villa, in the same way as he had named other places in Mexico after his comrades in arms, this one for Ivor Thord-Gray, author of Gringo Rebel, who joined the Mexican revolutionaries 1913-1914. Gringo Rebel is Thord-Gray s account of his experience in the Mexican Revolution, and of the close bond he formed with his Yaqui and Tarahumara scouts, providing unique accounts of the battle of Tierra Blanca, the near disintegration of the revolution in April 1914, a secret mission of reconciliation with Zapata, and of diplomatic intrigue which remains shrouded in secrecy to the present day.
