STERLING BENNETT. Playing for Pancho Villa


STERLING BENNETT. Playing for Pancho Villa.

Frank Holloway, a young mining engineer in Mogollon, NM, suffers from mercury poisoning and hence poor judgment. After Pancho Villa’s attack on Columbus, NM in 1916, Frank rides his mare down into Mexico carrying an 1873 Winchester and a Civil War brass telescope. Taken prisoner by Pancho Villa, Frank is forced to join the September 15 attack against Carrancista forces in Chihuahua City—and only barely survives. A love story.
