"Because Emil Blichfeldt, the assistant editor of the Chautauqua Press, believed that in Mexico what one should see was not the sights but the Mexican people, he spent three years around 1910 observing everyday life while avoiding Mexico City and American tourists. Blichfeldt enjoyed Mexico the way it was but did not romanticize its undeveloped nature... I is interesting to note that Blichfeld's assessment of the laboring conditions in Yucatan was made just after John Kenneth Turner's (in Barbarous Mexico), but Blichfeld's conclusion were not nearly as severe."
