The author of eight books, including poetry, fiction, and regional history, Robert Richter has a forty-year relationship with Latin America, and that cultural geography inspires his work. In 2000 Richter won the Nebraska Arts Council’s Literary Achievement Award for nonfiction, and in 2007, he was a Fulbright Research Fellow in Buenos Aires. Richter has also been a wheat farmer, substitute teacher, and tour guide in Latin America. His other books on Mexico include Something in Vallarta (1991), Something Like A Dream (2014), Something For Nothing (2015), Search for the Camino Real: A History of San Blas and the Road to Get There (2011), and Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas and the Roots of Mexico's New Democracy (2000).
