John Gibler, an intrepid journalist originally from Texas, grew up with Mexican culture and it remained an interest and influence as he embarked on his journalism career. His latest book, To Die in Mexico astounded me. Aside from all the information and first-hand stories that one would not encounter elsewhere, what struck me most about this book was a sense of admiration for what Gibler accomplished here, and plain old relief to learn that he is alive and well. Few people are willing to risk their lives to bring untold stories to life. My Q&A with Gibler about his experience and writing process can be found here.
