One Amazing Adventure May 18, 2005
"From the first page to the last page, this book is one amazing adventure." Roger Cantu - Author of "Powerful Mental Development."
Bravery, heroism, and audacity, convert the narration of this novel into an honest and wonderful treat for action & adventure lovers. These are the qualities of the daredevil pilots of World War I, that gather to form a flying circus, and eventually join forces as allies of Pancho Villa. After adhering to his cause, they convert five obsolete planes into warplanes capable of amazing maneuvers.
Ultimately, death takes five of these brave pilots, and leaves two of them alive. Frank and Antonio who become involved in a love triangle with a beautiful young woman named Florentina. The romantic struggle takes the characters into a powerful journey of discovery. While at the same time, new light is shined on the legendary life of Pancho Villa.
This book fliesWh Jun 28, 2004
When I say this book flies it's because it took me from page one to the very last in one sitting. I just could not put it down. Aventure and action keep you going, and the romantic triangle between the Mexican and the American pilot for the love of the girl resolves until the very last page in a dramatic duel and an unexpected ending. Pancho Villa appears briefly, but so well depicted that you get to really know him intimately. A swell book I heartily recommend.
I'm glad I bought it. Jun 25, 2004
It is more action adventure romance than I hoped for. This book dragged me from the first to the last page without letting go of me. A truly really great page turner contrived within the historical frame of the Mexican revolution, which lends realism and credence to the plot. Although Francisco Villa is a lesser participant, the way he is depicted provides an authentic insight of this wondrous character. I congratulate myself on choosing this book that,besides entertaining me fully, taught me a lot about Mexico and its people.
