In the mountains of Guanajuato, Mexico sits a picturesque community favored by artists and tourists.

From February to November of 1906, California journalist Albert Sonnichsen made his way through the remnants of the Ottoman Empire, observing firsthand a country falling apart. Entrenched among a group of revolutionaries at war with the Greeks and Turks, he took special pleasure in seeking out the region's most notorious guerrillas (many of whom he captured in photographs). The prose is as taut and contemporary as the story is riveting-history as lived in the trenches, from one of the first "embedded" journalists. A native of San Francisco, ALBERT SONNICHSEN (1878-1931) worked as a foreign reporter for the New York Tribune, McClure's, and the New York Evening Post. He also wrote Ten Months a Captive Among Filipinos.
