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

This story starts out with the author rescuing a near-to-starvation retired race horse. Once gaining each other's trust, the two begin to show support and love for one another. Thinking she would do the rescuing only surprised her more when the horse saved her and helped mend her broken heart.Incredibly heroic, full of heart and soul. ~ Reviewed by Suzanne Rice
