“After leaving Harvard, Charles Flandrau (1871-1938) made several journeys to Mexico where he used his brother’s coffee farm as a base. From these experiences he gathered the material for Viva Mexico! which was published in 1908. It was immediately recognized as a classic and since then has been in constant demand by the American reading public.” (back cover text).

Sybille Bedford, another outstanding travel writer on Mexico, described this book as “the most enchanting, as well as extremely funny book on Mexico.”
