Tecate Journals

by Bowden, Keith


A unique, compelling, and timely adventure that explores an important natural resource and its extraordinary impact on our borderlands.

More than a man-against-nature adventure - the author floats us along the border of political furor, cultural limbo, and dangerous human encounters .

A first work from a new voice that is parts gritty, elegant, and contemporary - this book touches on environmental issues, adrenalin-spiked action, and the author's ambivalence with his own cultural identity. The Rio Grande is simultaneously one of the most watched and least understood rivers in the world. Some stretches of the Rio pass for endless miles through remote wilderness, boxed in by canyons hundreds of feet high and inhabited by only the hardiest animals and humans. Other stretches go straight through the center of massive urban areas, all but ignored by the thousands of city folks above. It is a national border, a water source, a dangerous rapid with house-sized boulders, a nature refuge, a garbage dump, and a playground, depending on where you are on its 1885-mile course.
