When a man appears at the door of her home in the Sonoran desert lost and half-dead, Peg Bowden must examine the values that drive her life choices, which arent currently aligned with the politics of her homeland. This true story of shared humanity explores the literal and metaphorical significance of the borders in our lives, and the fear and xenophobia that keep them standing.
Peg Bowden grew up in Tucson, Arizona, spent her adult life in Ashland, Oregon, and returned to the Sonoran desert after retiring from a career in nursing. Living close to the US/Mexico border, she delights in the rich ethnicity and cultural traditions of southern Arizona. She also volunteers at an aid station known as "el comedor," and with organizations such as the Samaritans, and gives presentations around the country on border and humanitarian issues.

She writes about her personal experiences in the Arizona-Sonora desert, and those of the people she encounters on both sides of The Wal
