Journey through the History of Mexico

Viaje por la Historia de México -- Just got my copy today. I'm not sure how far 27 million copies will go.

Travel through the history of Mexico, a work created by Luis Gonzalez y Gonzalez, is a book that the Federal Government will send to all Mexican households under the Bicentennial of Independence and the Centennial of the Revolution.

The publication, distributed on the occasion of the celebrations of 2010 , will exceed 27 million copies. Contains 68 pages , is made on bond paper and divided into 30 chapters.

Travel through Mexico's history opens with an introduction by President Felipe Calderón Hinojosa, after which includes the presentation written by Luis González y González. This work will be distributed by the Mexican Postal Service for which the figure is taken from INEGI of 27 million households in Mexico.

The book is divided into 30 periods of our national history that range from pre-Hispanic cultures of Mesoamerica until the end of the twentieth century. Other topics that appear in the book are the consummation of Independence and the first Empire, the U.S. invasions , the Reformation, the French intervention and the Republic renovated, Benito Juárez and Sebastián Lerdo de Tejada.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
