God’s Middle Finger

I wasn’t sure when I started reading God’s Middle Finger whether the book was a novel or non-fiction.  As I read the Prologue I was pretty sure this was a fictional account of a writer’s journey “into the lawless heart of the Sierra Madre.”  The Sierra Madre mountain range is just south of the United States’ border with Mexico near Arizona.  The accounts of author Richard Grant are unbelievable except that they are believable.  One description of the Sierra Madre is that the rules of law and society have never taken hold.
