This engaging book analyses the historical geography of the port of San Blas, on Mexico's west coast, and its hinterland which includes the small city of Tepic . Robert Richter has known this area personally for decades, and his intimate knowledge of the local geography shines through. This branch of the Camino Real, from Guadalajara to San Blas, played a key role in the history of Western Mexico, and saw everything from pirates and adventurers to soldiers, priests and smugglers.

Portobelo and San Blas Islands: Explore Spanish fortresses and pirate history. The first of the sites here that we saw was the ancient cementerio de peregrinos pilgrim cemetery. The wall and the cross are all that remain of the original cemetary. I wonder how ancient peregrinos felt when they saw this place. Next we saw the Casa de Carnero, founded by the powerful Ulloa family and as the sign below says, the place where Carlos V, on March 24 of stayed while on his way to be crowned Emperor. In the 16th century this house was given the right of asylum.

A Bantam Book, published by arrangement with the author. What Robert Ludlum is too modest to say is that when The Road to Gandolfo was published under his own name, it immediately became an international best-seller in eighteen different countries. Readers were delighted to discover that his gift for comedy matched his talent for writing entertaining yet meaningful thrillers.

The Road is a 2006 post-apocalyptic novel by American writer Cormac McCarthy. The book details the journey of a father and his young son over a period of several months, across a landscape blasted by an unspecified cataclysm that has destroyed most of civilization and, in the intervening years, almost all life on Earth. The novel was awarded the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction in 2006.

Both historical investigation and travelogue, this documented study of the end of the Camino Real and San Blas, Mexico, is woven into the author's personal account of the search for remnants of Mexico's colonial road in the lowlands and sierras of modern Nayarit, aided and accompanied in his excursions by various regional historians, local guides, and curious companions. And like the old road running through the contemporary landscape, the historical narrative merges into the story of the region's modern character and development. To explore the Nayarit's wild and gorgeous geography, trying to site the ancient Camino Real, is to stumble over another road running toward the state's future economic development as part of the Mexican Riviera. Nearly five hundred years after the Spanish conquest of Mexico, the history of San Blas and the road to get there is still being written. This is a contemporary narrative portrait. Maps, photos, footnotes, and annotated bibliography.

If you are interested in the history of Mexico and specifically the Nayarit area, then this is your book. The author does deviate occasionally into some personal almost soap opera type opinions of people he knows in the area, but it does not take away from the real meat of the book.

Everything in it very interesting and informative. However the pictures were a great disappointment. In this digital age there is no excuse for muddy and poorly focused photos. Historical snapshots can be improved and should have been for this publication. The maps, also, were not upgraded sufficiently to be very useful.

I liked learning about the history of San Blas, I loved the descriptions of San Blas today. He captures the essence of the town as it is, and why I love it so.
Thank you so much.

This book is great for those interested in the history of Mexico, particularly the Pacific coast. It is filled with historical facts.

This book turns out to be much more than just a history of San Blas. This is a strategically important place, at one time, arguably the most important seaport on the west coast of Mexico. The legacy of that heritage is barely visible in a few of the remaining buildings, but is otherwise invisible. The road that connected San Blas to Mexico City and beyond can still be found in some places near San Blas. The story of those roads and the transportation network of roadhouses helps paint a picture of what life was like for people living centuries ago. The writer has combined a mountain of academic research with his own personal experiences to create a fairly balanced picture of this small fishing village and where it fits in to Mexico's history, both yesterday and today. The somewhat candid accounts of modern day San Blas and the characters who hang out there adds depth to this book. The author has a comfortable way of looking at the world around him and separating the wheat from the chaff. This is the most enjoyable research book I remember reading.
