"Story about immigration ; I read this years ago when it first came out - and I still think about the people on their way to Florida to pack oranges and never made it.

I am grateful for the insight and LOVE Pat expresses for the regions of the borderlands; An adventurer, an ornithologist with the Museum of Northern Arizona and friend of Everett Ruess ; Pat's stories have colored my sense of wonder as I wander across borders, deserts and ranch lands. Thank you Pat !"
"Book of the HOPI I found insightful to imagine the great migrations of the Americas; the stories have colored my concept of my drive between Northern AZ and Northern MX. Some academics don't like it - but it was recommended to me and I see the world with a new lens."
