On the Border is a book on life on both sides of the border that separates Mexico and America. It’s a collection of stories, memories, and photographs from those on either side of this dividing line. These are some very personal stories about people who live on the border; they’re not just statistics in our lives or headlines on the news.

This beautiful coffee table-style book features full-color photo essays capturing moments along La Frontera–the boundary between Mexico and America–and tells many different tales: encouraging ones showing how we can cooperate to create solutions for problems like climate change; heartbreaking ones portraying what it means when families are forcibly separated because their only crime was crossing an invisible political barrier; humorous ones including one man’s story of how he and his friends on the border formed a “Border Patrol” to deal with a persistent intruder.

This book provides an intimate view on life on the border, like no other before it. It’s not about what politicians or pundits might tell you–it’s coming from people who are on the ground every day living in this land divided by history, culture, language, ethnicity and religion.

The title On The Border is drawn from two sources: Shakespeare’s play As You Like It where Touchstone says “all that lives must show itself at some time;’ and lyrics from Bob Dylan’s song Tangled Up In Blue.’
