Living on the US-Mexico Border

http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/video/living-us-mexico-border-native-americans-face-daily-19516005

The above link is to an ABC video on crossing the border into the United States through the Tohono O’odam Indian Reservation.  This is an area we know well and is an area Kiko and Maggie Perez discover while tracking smuggled materials.  If you have read and enjoyed Up the Devil’s Highway by Karen Hopkins, you can see where Bernard Santiago and his wife crossed the Border at the San Miguel gate, and the barren country border crossers must traverse to reach the Promised Land.  

If you haven’t read Up the Devil’s Highway look for it on Amazon Kindle, or buy The Memorial Day Trilogy and get all three Kiko and Maggie Mysteries in one book. If you don’t have a Kindle remember you can download the Kindle app.  Read and enjoy!  You may even learn some interesting things about the borderlands as a side benefit!
