[A] love song to a country, to a people, to a way of life that is at once alien and yet irresistibly alluring.
Dancing Alone in Mexico
captures the flavor of the country, its true essence, in a series of personal memoirs that provide illuminating insights for anyone venturing south of the border, or for the armchair traveler seeking literary adventure.
—The Mature Traveler
Whether Butler is describing an afternoon of shopping in Nogales, his search for the perfect cup of Mexican coffee, or the allure of the night ferry to La Paz, he writes with a passion that is contagious. This is an excellent book, with an intimacy more often found in love letters than travel books.

If you plan to travel to Mexico, Dancing Alone in Mexico
by Ron Butler is must reading. If you would like to travel to Mexico but can't get there, Dancing Alone in Mexico
is well worth the price to live vicariously through the eyes and ears of a many who loves, enjoys, understands and knows the country better than any norte Americano I know.
