    1. A rollicking true life adventure story following Lee Christmas, a train engineer who became an infamous adventurer/mercenary. Christmas was part of several misadventures in Central America, nearly all involving U.S. gunboat diplomacy and the devious tendrils of the United Fruit Company. It's a hell of an adventure and a pretty good read.

    2. This is the true story of a tramp railroader, scoundrel, soldier of fortune and company man for United Fruit in Honduras during the Banana Republic days. If it sounds like the first three characteristics add up to the last then you have an inkling for the politics, but what you need is the high romance of imperial adventure as written by a fawning chronicler of the "legend" of Lee Christmas!
