This is a short story that tells very little about the Mexican Revolution. A farmer with about ten other men get mad and take on the Federal troops. The farmer becomes a leader after he takes on more battles and more men sign on with him. Through out the book he wonders what he is fighting for.

this book has a good thing goin for it but many key parts of it are missing and are ungood. the charictors seemed very in to depth but still ungood. the crazy twist at the end is amazing but ungood. the overall key points of the are very far and inbetween but yet they are ungood where they are.
