Where Strange Roads Go Down

Just wondering if anyone has read this book by Mary and Fred del Villar. It's still available thru Amazon and others but could use a review.

An adventurous couple from New York City who have more imagination than money, decide to take a walking trip in Mexico from Lake Patzcuaro to the Pacific and back with only the help of two burros in 1951. They walk 750 miles round trip and enjoy meeting and staying with country people all along the way. For three months they endured sun, scorpions, floods, and hunger, but they also found warm friendship everywhere they went.

Patzcuaro is the ex-capital of Michoacan and before that was Tzintzuntzan, a small town nearby dating to the Purhépecha empire in the 1300's. The museum in Patzcuaro is finding ruins in it's back yard that predates history and they are believed to be earlier than the history of Tzintzuntzan. The Purhépecha were one of the indigenous tribes that were not conquered by the Aztecs
