Mark J. Hainds is a naturalist, adventurer, and author from Andalusia, Alabama who quit his job and planned a trek of the Texas – Mexico border that many people thought he would not survive. Mark’s walk began at International Boundary Marker 1 in El Paso and ended over a thousand miles later at Boca Chica Beach in Brownsville, where the Rio Grande empties into the Gulf of Mexico. From right-wing ranchers to cowboy poets to human-rights activists to fence / wall opponents, Mark met a myriad of people along the way who were eager to discuss the balance between border security and immigration justice.
