HOBO_talk_2PM_lgExperience the border from the back of a horse as author Richard C. Collins, a rancher from Sonoita, shares his story of friendship, acceptance, and cultural awareness.  Collins and a group of compadres from both sides of the border spend four days annually riding the trails of Padre Kino, getting to know the land and its people.  This group, known as Por Los Caminos de Kino, dedicates themselves to advancing the canonization of Padre Kino and supporting peaceful border relations. His book, Riding Behind the Padre: Horseback Views from Both Sides of the Border takes readers on four of those trail rides.  Listen to Collins share his inspiring stories of peace and camaraderie.
