Summary
Harriet, a frustrated spinster flees her unrewarding life in America hoping to discover the passion in her soul. Ambrose Bierce, the Old Gringo, is a retired journalist and adventurer who wanders through the hostile desert seeking some meaning to the last years of his life. Arroyo, a fiery young general, is driven by both the Revolution and his desire for Harriet. Set in the spectacle of the Mexican Revolution, their lives become inexplicably drawn together as they face love, death and war
