In June of 1900, fifteen-year-old Arnulfo Triana Benavente is working at the mines at La Mina de Ojuela in Mapimi, Durango, Mexico. His father, Juan, has been gone for years as a soldier but has returned with hopeful news. He has become a Guardia Rural and having served three of his four years; he is planning to move his family to Monclova, Mexico with the dreams of a safer life. Unfortunately for Arnulfo, those dreams are shattered when he sees his vengeful boss raping a Yaqui woman. In a fit of rage, Arnulfo kills his boss to save the woman and is forced to leave his village, running to the Sierra Madre mountains to escape an assured hanging him for his crime. It is there he meets Francisco 'Pancho' villa, takes the name of 'Indio', and begins a new life fighting the injustices of Presidente Diaz during Mexico's Revolutionary War. History comes to life in this riveting historical drama based on the exploits of Pancho Villa. A war-torn Mexico is the backdrop as the author accurately describes the atrocities that lead to Mexico's bloodiest era. Endearing characters, vivid battle scenes, and an unforgettable story make Black Sun a captivating journey of love, loss, hope, and redemption.
