For Francisco Cantú, the border is in the blood: his mother, a park ranger and daughter of a Mexican immigrant, raised him in the scrublands of the Southwest. Driven to understand the hard realities of the landscape he loves, Cantú joins the Border Patrol. He and his partners learn to track other humans under blistering sun and through frigid nights. They haul in the dead and deliver to detention those they find alive. Plagued by a growing awareness of his complicity in a dehumanizing enterprise, he abandons the Patrol for civilian life. But when an immigrant friend travels to Mexico to visit his dying mother and does not return, Cantú discovers that the border has migrated with him, and now he must know the full extent of the violence it wreaks, on both sides of the line.

    I think this book started out good and I liked hearing the real stories of his time on the border, but it got muddled halfway and I'm not sure what the overall goal was? To relay the conflict of families on the border? He went from border patrol to spending a third of the book at the end just talking about his friends personal situation. Glad I listened and got some perspective but overall was disappointed and left me wanting more direction.
