stonemason's Thoughts:

In this adventure, you are hitchhiking down to Mexico when you get involved with Pancho Villa and a bunch of other Mexican revolutionaries.

This one also has a relatively high number of endings for the series, and the choices come at a relatively fast pace, so it's somewhat more interactive then some of the others. The writing is good, as usual. I especially liked this one because there are so many different types of people you can meet, all of whom have different attitudes about the revolution. You can meet Villa himself, who says he's fighting for land and liberty, you can meet General Pershing who thinks that Villa is a common criminal, or you can meet some Mexican peasants who don't think Villa is really on their side. It's nice having a book where all the figures aren't 100% good or 100% bad.
