"We could see them now, hundreds of little black figures riding through the chaparral. A spent bullet droned overhead, then one unspent, and then a whole flock. 'Come on, Meester! Let's go!' We began to run...." The material for this remarkable history came from journalist and poet John Reed's experience as a war correspondent during the Mexican Revolution. First published in 1914, the gripping Insurgent Mexico earned Reed everlasting fame as a reporter and left behind a vivid portrait of a people, place, and time. It is read in its entirety by gifted narrator Frank Muller.
American journalist John Reed's Insurgent Mexico gives a rough-and-tumble look at the Mexican Revolution of 1914. Reed isn't some outsider Gringo looking in; he gets on the road with Pancho Villa himself. Reed embeds himself in the heart of the action and is lucky to come out alive to tell the tale. Frank Muller's performance is dramatic. He relishes every word with passion, embracing Reed's vigor. Muller easily handles Spanish words that cross his path. Those listeners who want to see a war from the inside will certainly enjoy this collaboration.
"Undoubtedly the best reporting that's ever been done." (Walter Lippmann)
