First edition. "A year spent in the village of Ajijic near Lake Chapala afforded the author an opportunity to observe a relatively small slice of Mexican life in a most detailed and introspective fashion. A month-by-month recounting of his acquaintances with the villagers, during which he first rented, then bought land and finally built a house is filled with comments that reveal observation and reflection... In general he showed great tolerance towards characteristics many travelers found annoying, and at times he sought to explain their existence. Cole. AMERICAN TRAVELERS IN MEXICO. #256.
