Lucia St. Clair Robson won the Golden Spur Award with her nationally best-selling novel Ride the Wind. In Last Train from Cuernavaca, it's Christmas time in Mexico, 1913. Even as army officers and their wives enjoy the atmosphere at Grace Knight's beautiful old hotel, soldiers scour the countryside outside the city looking for rebels. There, 16-year-old Angela Sanchez's family home is destroyed in a hail of bullets. But once the soldiers leave, Angela returns to look for survivors, arm herself - and join the revolution.
