For Francisco Cantú, the border is in the blood: his mother, a park ranger and daughter of a Mexican immigrant, raised him in the scrublands of the Southwest. Driven to understand the hard realities of the landscape he loves, Cantú joins the Border Patrol. He and his partners learn to track other humans under blistering sun and through frigid nights. They haul in the dead and deliver to detention those they find alive. Plagued by a growing awareness of his complicity in a dehumanizing enterprise, he abandons the Patrol for civilian life. But when an immigrant friend travels to Mexico to visit his dying mother and does not return, Cantú discovers that the border has migrated with him, and now he must know the full extent of the violence it wreaks, on both sides of the line.

Sport: Ship Dog of the Great Lakes is Poppy-Approved!
In 1914 crew members of the lighthouse tender Hyacinth rescued a stray puppy from the Milwaukee River
and named him Sport. For the next twelve years, this charming Newfoundland-retriever mix lived the life of a ship dog.
In this beautifully illustrated children’s book based on historical documents and photographs, readers share in Sport’s
adventures while discovering the various ways lighthouse tender ships helped keep the lake safe for others.
A signed book plus an adorable plush make a great gift combo!
