The author served in the old Immigration & Naturalization Service from 1968 to 1997 in locations across the United States in a variety of duties. The most fun he ever had on the job, he says, was in the green uniform of the U.S. Border Patrol in El Paso, and he has drawn upon those experiences as source material for Tracks in the Sand.
He is now retired and lives in central Washington state, where he spends his time committing golf (as he puts it) and riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycles around the country.
A compelling,true-to-life novel of bad guys and bandits versus the Border Patrol. Action,danger, brotherhood, and romance; written by a former Border Patrolman. Wambaugh wrote about LAPD - if you liked that, you'll like this.
