Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0887391214, Paperback)

Celia Wakefield's loving account of her and and her husband's retirement to Mexico is an equally fun read for those considering such a move and those who simply want a glimpse into a long-term visitor's experience in small-town Mexico. The author's stories of her Mexican adventures with her husband Bill and their dog, Sam, mostly revolve around the eye-opening experiences of life in a new culture, but some of them also carry a hint of mystery: "We settled into the small town of Villa de Alvarez, and so did Sam. We thought of taking him up onto the slopes of the volcano to explore and follow his profession of pointing pheasants, but there were no pheasant near Colima, and besides, we were afraid of losing him in wild country. We might have taken him hunting for the elusive onza, but did the animal really exist? We were never sure. Some of our neighbors claimed to have seen the big beasts, a cross between a jaguar and puma, native, they assured us, only to the volcano."
