Summary
Bosque Bonito is a first-hand account written by Robert "Bob" Keil, a US cavalryman stationed in the Big Bend during the violent years of the Mexican Revolution. From 1913 to 1918, Keil lived in the borderlands along the Rio Grande in the wild and primitive Big Bend country of West Texas. He was living the life he had longed for, and he himself said later that his years in the Big Bend were the happiest and wildest years of his life. But they were also years of violence, and he would remain haunted throughout his life by the tragedies he had witnessed. The beauty and tragedy of Keil's river experience were powerfully impressed upon him, and continued to captivate him as time and again he wrote the story. - Back cover
