RARA-AVIS: Narco Corrido

Tonight's episode of The Shield dealt with Narco Corrido, songs which are supposed to be true stories about the Mexican underworld. I found this book, Narcocorrido : A Journey into the Music of Drugs, Guns, and Guerrillas by Elijah Wald. Wald hitchhiked through northern Mexico and the southwestern US to make contact with the singers, fans and subjects of the songs. It sounds very interesting. Has anyone read this book? Is it any good?
