Publisher's Summary

Gabacho is the true tale of youthful angst, crime, misunderstandings, love, friendship, and redemption. Over Christmas break of his senior year, a University of Utah theater student, disenchanted with his conservative Mormon upbringing, took off for Mexico with a college friend seeking a wild adventure. If the adventure hadn’t included smuggling drugs it might have been another college road trip. But after a disastrous encounter with a drug cartel, they ended up being arrested by Mexican Federales while trying to make it to the US border. Jewkes and friend are tossed into a Mexican prison, where they find themselves anticipating torture, rape, and even death. A fight with a notorious killer, struggles with tormenting guards, and the difficulties of foreign prison lead to a disastrous escape attempt. To survive, Jewkes starts a theater group with a rag-tag bunch of Mexican convicts.
