So Far From God: A Journey to Central America
So Far From God: A Journey to Central America

A British barrister, journalist and writer with a keenly perceptive eye describes his journey through California, Mexico and the four northernmost Central American countries. Irreverent or reverent, with or without irony, the author never strays from the grime and sweat and grit of life as the masses live it, thus infusing his colorful and absorbing account with a vivid sense of reality.
