Dead Mules by Dave Folsom

Alarico Damián Acosta sat in a 1994 Chevy pickup without air-conditioning. He stared east across the Rio Grande River at the State of Texas while desert sweat rolled down his back and soaked his shirt. The temperature on that July afternoon rose to one hundred sixteen degrees in the shade and shade was non-existent. He had turned off Highway 2 onto the Chihuahuan Desert sand, dodging cactus, the desert scrub, and a variety of desert creatures while driving east. Creeping to a point where he could see the river and the continuation of the desert on the American side, he stopped. It looked ideal and he grinned, pleased with himself.

Coyote Rules Book Video

When Charlie Draper’s daughter asks him to find and help one of her employees, he does not take long to find the young woman. The Border Patrol arrested, and charged her with smuggling over five kilos of dope. The charges are not only serious, but come with mandatory prison time, if found guilty.

Her family in Mexico is at risk if she gives the information to the authorities. Draper and DeCollado rush into Northern Mexico to save the young woman’s family, and find themselves embroiled in murder, drug smuggling, and worse. Continue reading

For example, the cover. After multiple tries and hours playing with Photoshop, I succeeded in creating a cover that passed muster among my long-standing critics. You will see it above and as always comments are encouraged and welcomed. Continue reading

Sonoran Desert Photography

http://www.davefolsom.net/?p=2709 In the pictures above you will be able to understand my love of the Sonoran Desert. The place is a photographer’s dream with a wide abundance of colors, scenery, wild animals, some common, and a few found only in the Sonoran desert. The flora is also unique to the area. Saguaro Cactus, a multi-armed monster when mature, has a 200-plus lifetime, but doesn’t begin to grow arms until at least ninety years old. Continue reading
