A Border History of La Junta de los Rios
Jefferson Morgenthaler 368 pages, softcover $22.95. University of Texas Press, 2004.
The Rio Grande and Rio Conchos meet to form La Junta de los Rios, a basin along the U.S.-Mexico border where the cast of characters includes farmers, shepherds, Border Patrol agents and even the odd tourist. The place is obviously near and dear to Morgenthaler: "The things that can be cooked with lard, pinto beans and masa harina will make you fat unless you work as hard as people do in Presidio," he writes.
