Summary
General Gorostieta is a retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake as he and his wife watch Mexico fall into a violent civil war. Yet the man who hesitates in joining the cause will soon become the resistance's most inspiring and self-sacrificing leader, as he begins to see the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen and transforms a rag-tag band of rebels into a heroic force to be reckoned with. The General faces impossible odds against a powerful and ruthless government. Yet it is those he meets on the journey--youthful idealists, feisty renegades, and one remarkable teenager named Jose--who reveal to him how courage and belief are forged even when justice seems lost
