Some historical novels set a story in a particular time and place as a vehicle for teaching history. Frederick Andresen's 'Dos Gringos' tells an exciting and often humorous tale that happens to take place during the Mexican revolution as World War I raged in Europe. This is not to say that the book was not well researched. It is obvious the author had firsthand knowledge of some of the people and events described. The story is of two new Americans, a Norwegian and an Irishman, trying to survive an impossible situation in Mexico and return to Texas to pick up lives they were unwise to leave. Mr. Andresen deftly draws the reader into the tale and leaves them wondering until the last few chapters whether the heroes will survive. 'Dos Gringos' is a short book that races the reader along with the speed of a runaway train. I look forward to reading more from the author.
