In this raw look at the life of a Texas Border Patrol Guard, the author writes of the reality of a failed system where the humanitarian efforts of search and rescue take a back seat to the capture of drug smugglers. His vivid descriptions explain how those protecting the U.S. borders can become indifferent to the human sacrifice of those trying to cross over to a better life. An important read for anyone wanting to understand the border patrol's mandate. ~ Reviewed by Suzanne Rice
