Zapatista is faithfully based upon the facts of the 1994 Chiapas Indian uprising in Southern Mexico. It is designed to be interesting to a reader simply wanting to read an adventure story, as well as one interested in the deeper drama of a people's revolution. The protagonist, Peter, is a Texan who sabbaticals with his friends in the Sierra Madre for the purpose of writing, drinking, and seeking adventure. Peter gets more adventure than anticipated. A whirlwind of circumstances hurls him away from his friends and into revolutionary life and death struggles. These adventures and the love of an Indian woman, Lxil, forever change Peter's life.
