Zapatista Revolution

A brief introduction into Mexican History


by Blake Bailey

Read the first chapter here.

Zapatista is faithfully based on the facts of the 1994 Chiapas Indian uprising in southern Mexico. It is designed to be interesting to anyone simply wanting to read an adventure story, as well as anyone interested in the deeper drama of a people revolution.

The protagonist, Peter, is a Texan who sabbaticals with friends in the Sierra-Madre for the purpose of writing, drinking, and seeking adventure. Peter gets more adventure than anticipated when a whirlwind of circumstances hurls him away from his friends into a life and death struggle for the revolutionary cause. These adventures and the love of an Indian woman, Lxil, forever change Peter's life.
