A travelogue and historical exploration of Mexico from one of the twentieth century's greatest travel writers
Dame Rebecca West travels through Mexico and explores its people, history, religion, and culture in her unfinished work Survivors in Mexico , carefully stitched together by Bernard Schweizer in this posthumously published edition. West tackles the country's broad historical legacy--the Spanish conquest and Mexican revolution, the muralist movement, race relations, and contemporary life--and delves into the personal, intimate lives of key figures such as Hern#65533;n Cort#65533;s, Montezuma, Dr. Atl, Diego Rivera, and Leon Trotsky. Conceived as a companion to West's masterful classic Black Lamb and Grey Falcon , this book showcases the complexity of West's character, addresses the paradoxes inherent in her work, and allows for a mature understanding of her ideology. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Rebecca West featuring rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the Department of Special Collections and University Archives, McFarlin Library, at the University of Tulsa.
