about this book: Taking a personal response to Pancho Villa's infamous raid on the American town of Columbus, N.M., Martin Carter travels into Mexico to pursue the killers of his daughter.

Writers usually work from an outline, a plan if you will, but this was written from the seat of my pants. This allows the reader to experience every twist and turn as it was imagined. Further, they can walk away at the end with the same feeling I had.

If you're looking for a read that will fill up your afternoon, this is the story for you. Can a good man do bad things? Find out! Expect a revenge tale with a tug at the heart. YES you read right! Maybe the good guys win and the bad guys get what they deserve, this is not your grandfather's western. LEFT HANDED GRINGO begins as a simple revenge tale and ends with a twist to make it fall into the category of Revisionist Western.
