Covering a fifty-year span of law enforcement,Desert Duty reveals the patriotic sense of duty and compassionate calling that motivates the men and women who guard the borders of the United States.



The agents candidly discuss the rewards and frustrations of holding the line against illegal immigrants, smugglers & other criminalsowhile often having to help the very people they are trying to thwart when they get into trouble in the desert. As one agent explains, "The thrill is tracking 'em up before they die. It's a rough ol' way to goorun outta water in this desert."
