Gringos

Gringos by Charles Portis

This is a fun story to read. Charles Portis, author of the more familiar "True Grit," tells this tale of Americans (Gringos) running around the Yucatan during the heyday of Mayan archaeology. Some of the Gringos are there for serious research, some are there for a religious experience, and some are there to make a buck off of the researchers and the seekers.

I really enjoyed this book, and it goes a long way to prove a good story can be told without graphic violence, over-the-top profanity, and/or gratuitous sexuality!
