In a blend of biography, personal essay, and a rendition of deeply researched metaphysical and Mexican history that reads like a novel, award-winning writer and noted literary translator C.M. Mayo provides a rich introduction and the first translation of the secret book by Francisco I. Madero, leader of Mexico's 1910 Revolution and President of Mexico 1911-1913. Says Mexican historian Manuel Guerra de Luna, author of LOS MADERO: LA SAGA LIBERAL, "In my fifteen years of researching the life of President Francisco I. Madero, I have never read a more complete book as the one just written by C.M. Mayo. It will simply surprise any reader. The research is impeccable and the narrative well-rounded." C.M. Mayo is the author of several works on Mexico, including THE LAST PRINCE OF THE MEXICAN EMPIRE, a novel based on the true story and named a Library Journal Best Book of 2009.
