User Summary: You have to find the plaster death mask of Pancho Villa, a Robin Hood-like bandit who was an important fighter in the Mexican Revolution.
Demian's Thoughts: This book is quite good most of the time, but there are a few points where it has writing bad enough to be slightly cringe-inducing. Perhaps this is the weaker of the two writers showing through. In any case, despite these flaws of writing, it's a pretty good story and, like Sword of the Samurai, it deals with significant historical figures unfamiliar to many Americans (particularly the children this series is aimed at).
