Enter the world of the Borderland, between El Paso/Ciudad Juárez and Boca Chica, where U.S. Marshal Gabriella Zamora, and her special team, operate in 2019. This period of political theater in Washington D.C. causes grave misunderstandings about the people and culture of these unique places that erupts in battles, revenge and murder.
If you like the flavor of Hispanic literary sagas like Don Quixote, House of Spirits, Love in the Time of Cholera, and Like Water for Chocolate coupled with the stark realism of Cormac Mc Carthy’s The Border Trilogy, you will love La Frontera.
Welcome to the mysterious realm of the Borderland...
VIVA! – the twentieth century Mexican Revolution imperative LIVE! --inspires the artistic family and friends of the borderland marshals to start production of a new stage presentation about the early twentieth century Mexican Revolution that promises to be the Borderland’s answer to another, earlier revolution in the same hemisphere.
Spirit Eye, the three-thousand-year-old cave and home to the Texas Jumano tribe, shelters its last inhabitant and only shaman, and unexpectantly becomes a sanctuary for U.S. Marshal Alex Ranslow who experiences severe heat stroke while wandering the west Texas desert.
Together the two shaman investigate a grave robbing scheme that is systematically taking ancient Native America grave goods and mummies for black market sales. The crimes, in violation of the 1990 NAGPRA, Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, test the statute’s viability against bigoted Texas ranchers and black-market profiteers.
True, the Jumano shaman, and Alex encounter a well-organized caravan of Mexican American women, also wandering the west Texas desert for a completely different purpose, in route to major craft fairs in Texas where they will sell their home-made jewelry and desperately needed medications to the women of Texas who suffer from lack of health care facilities.
La Cueva offers shelter to those who embark on compassionate missions and stand for the sanctity of the tribe’s ancient ones. But how will La Cueva withstand rising forces in the borderland where the U.S. Marshals and their friends could shatter in their relationships at any moment and maintain their power as a bulwark against those who would disrupt their borderland?
Welcome to La Fontera.
Stay tuned for additional Borderland Mysteries which will be announced soon!
