Richard’s presentation brings history and culture together with insight and love for our Borderlands as recounted in his acclaimed book “Riding Behind the Padre: Horseback Views from Both Sides of the Border.” Richard knows our Borderlands well as a rancher and as a member of Por Los Caminos de Kino. The riders of Por Los Caminos de Kino, for more than 25 years, have retraced on horseback the trails ridden by Fr. Eusebio Kino, the border region’s pioneer missionary and explorer.
Richard will be introduced by special guest Dr. Alessandra Lorini, a leading Kino scholar and retired professor of American History and Culture at the University of Florence, Italy. Dr. Lorini will present Richard with the recent publication of “Riding Behind the Padre” in its Italian translation. Dr. Lorini coordinated the Italian publication which was sponsored by the Associazione Culturale Padre Eusebio F. Chini.
The link to the website of “Riding Behind the Padre” with a book preview of the first chapter is at http://
