Francisco Nieto Jr. wanted to keep the legacy of his grandfather alive. He wants to pass them to the generations to come and so he relives their journey in “Hey Gringo! Come Here!” (published by Xlibris).

Primarily, this book is an epic story of the author’s grandfather’s trials and tribulations while a colonel in the Mexican Revolution of 1910 to 1920 and his life after the revolution. Brimming with action and life lessons learned by the author’s predecessors, this book allows readers to re-experience the struggles and triumphs of yesterday.

“This biography of Jose A. Nieto Houston is for all who are interested in the story of one man thrust into a revolution to fight for the survival of his life,” the author points out. “Jose A. Nieto Houston wrote his story for anyone who is interested.”

Nieto Jr. admits that the history of the Mexican Revolution is enormous, with lots of material to fill lots of books. However, with a personal touch from his grandfather, he shares a tale from one man’s perspective that gives a humanistic touch to an otherwise international phenomenon.
