Face to Face with the Mexicans:

THE

Domestic Life, Educational, Social, and Business Ways,
Statesmanship and Literature, Legendary and
General History of the Mexican People,

As seen and studied by an american woman during seven
Years of Familiar Intercourse with them.

BY

FANNY CHAMBERS GOOCH.

With 200 Illustrations from Original Drawings and Photographs,

Giving a complete picturesque delineation of interesting and beautiful places, famous heroes,
rulers, and authors, and a multiplicity of the detail of every-day life
among that unique people.

The Mexicans are very chary of admitting foreign men into their homes; but a cultivated and intelligent American woman (such as Mrs. Gooch is), properly introduced (as she was, through the most distinguished people of their nation), they receive with open-hearted hospitality. Thus our author had unexampled opportunities for observation in her kindly task.
The cordial commendatory letters of Bishop Riley and Mrs. Cornelia Townsend, on the following page, give not only a comprehensive idea of the labor which Mrs. Gooch undertook in making this book, but valuable testimony to the fact that the work has been successfully and brilliantly accomplished. It is
A Treasury of Romance, Legend, History, Picturesque Description,
Valuable Information, and Genial Humor.
IT IS ALSO
Beautifully Illustrated, Brilliantly Printed, and Richly Bound.

Fawn-colored English Cloth, $4.25.

The Same, gilt side, back, and edges, $5.00; Half Morocco, gilt edges, $7.50.
