Lecture and Book Singing: Richard Collin

March 5, 2015 @ 5:30 am - 6:30 am

$3.00 - $16.

Borderland immigration and drug trafficking are heated issues for most people living in the Southwest. But for Arizona rancher-author Richard Collins, who operates a 13,000 acre ranch near the Mexican border, they are a daily occurrence. Wanting to hear firsthand from those living and working in the middle of the action, Collins embarks on a horseback journey along the Arizona-Sonoran borderlands in Riding Behind the Padre: Horseback Views from Both Sides of the Border. In this true story, Collins joins up with a congenial group of Mexican riders retracing the pathways of Eusebio Francisco Kino, the pioneering Jesuit priest who explored the same borderlands three hundred years prior. The riders include a cross-section of Mexico’s growing middle class, bonded by faith in the Catholic Church, love of family and their country, and dedicated to the cause of Kino’s sainthood. They are also troubled by America’s failed war on drugs and its outdated immigration policies, and they often wonder if the United States is their ally or adversary.
