John Robert McCauleyabout this book: The Author lived in Arizona for over a decade and occasionally would hike the old trails of the Chiricahua Apaches in Southern Arizona and New Mexico in the Animas and Cedar Mountains, where time has stood still for hundreds of years, and a place where all your senses seem to be more keenly aware of the surroundings. Here, the rough terrain is similar on both sides of the border and it is difficult to tell when one crosses the border separating the United States and Mexico. On the other hand, the Author attended a couple of football games at the University of Texas at El Paso, and noticed a marked contrast with the United States and Mexico, which could easily be seen across the narrow Rio Grande.
On one side of the river was massive drug violence and hopelessness while on the American side was a bright university and hope. Across the river from the university is an area that seems to have lost humanity. In this regard, Danielle, a Western Cowgirl with a gift for charity in her heart, and her friend Caleb risk crossing that marked dividing line on a mission to help other people...a mission to pursue the goodness in their hearts. To do the good deed, they have to cross into drug cartel controlled land, where all eyes seem to be on them. Here, lethal violence may come suddenly and unexpected. Yet, as they travel into primitive Mexico, they encounter a simple life, less dependent on machines, where the people still with hope. The journey that is full of encounters which help develop the characters of Danielle and Caleb. Now let us begin this journey, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust, which spawns a series of surprises.
