Richard Collins, an Arizona rancher/author, operates a 13,000 acre ranch near the Mexican border. In this true story, "Collins joins up with a group of Mexican riders retracing the pathways of Eusebio Francisco Kino, the pioneering Jesuit priest who explored the same borderlands three hundred years prior. The riders include a cross-section of Mexico's growing middle class, bonded by faith in the Catholic Church, love of family and their country, and dedicated to the cause of Kino's sainthood." Voted Best Southwest Book of the Year 2014. "An altogether fresh approach to borderland issues, informed by scholarship but rooted in visceral knowledge of the region; a unique, mature, well-informed, and compassionate voice." --- Gary Paul Nabham, author of Cultures of Habitat.
