Format: Paperback
If you want to learn what being a "gringa" and living in Mexico is really like, you must read this book! Jenny McGill's fascinating account of her life with her husband, Howard, "Tales from the Sierra Madre" chronicles their adventures as they live and interact with the village townspeople of Talpa, a remote community in the mountains above the resort town of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The stories are charming and reveal Jenny's love for the Mexican culture and the lives of its citizens. Hers is a very special perspective, some of it gained as she worked as the US Consular Representative in Puerto Vallarta for over fourteen years. But, mostly this is a love story about two people who chose to live as ex-pats for most of their lives in a place where the activity of living is much slower and, sometimes, time almost stands still.

This was the second book that I read written by Jenny McGill. I enjoyed her first book, but this one was more personal and took the reader right along with her to meet her neighbors and know the area. It was also fun to get the receipes mentioned in the book. Must admit tears ran down my face while reading of the reunion in Talpa that Jenny orchestrated before her death. A charming and moving book written by a charming and caring woman. I highly recomend it to others. Hope it gets to Kindle.

WHAT I LOVED ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THE FAMILIARITY THAT JENNY AND I SHARE ABOUT TALPA, RESPECT AND LOVE OF MEXICO. THE WONDERFUL EXPERIENCES THAT HAVE OCCURRED ONCE YOU OPEN YOUR HEART, GO WITH THE LOVE AND GENEROSITY OF THE MEXICAN CULTURE. HER LOVE OF THESE EXPERIENCES SHINES THROUGH CLEARLY.
