"A rippin' good read...," June 19, 2011. By S. Albrecht "PariserCritic" (Berlin) - See all my reviews (REAL NAME).

"The Last Californio is a well-researched, modern tale about the long-standing Mexican-American land conflict, presenting biting commentary on the treatment of latino immigrants to the US today. Gar, a journalist in Mexico City, is forced to flee the country following the murder of his parents. His harrowing illegal crossing into the US launches an unforgiving journey into a hostile environment where he ultimately finds support and discovers his family's legacy. The story examines the destructive limits of obsession and the value of trust. In light of current US debate on immigration, this is a timely tale for all who want to understand the human desire for justice."
