The new book Out on Foot: Nightly Patrols and Ghostly Tales of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent is a book released in 2015 by Rocky Elmore. Mr. Elmore joined the United States Border Patrol, he knew it would be a journey fraught with danger. But little did he know that the very real trails he walked night after night would soon lead him into surreal encounters from a different dimension. This was never more evident than when the ghost of a recently fallen fellow agent began to appear on top of the cliff from which he died. It marked the beginning of the end to one of the most bizarre series of events in the history of the U.S. Border Patrol.
Out on Foot: A Collection of True Stories
This collection of true stories provides a rare look into law enforcement that includes not only the routine nightly patrols of the USBP but also actual paranormal activity as it happened to the agents in the field. Readers will go on nightly patrols with the agents of the Brown Field Border Patrol Station, and will face their worst fears as they come face to face with smugglers, mountain lions, ghosts, and even a Sasquatch in this isolated no-man’s land. OUT ON FOOT takes place in the mysterious Otay Mountains just east of San Diego, California. It is an emotional roller coaster ride that is not for the faint of heart.
If you listen to the media in 2016, there is a lot of talk about illegal immigration and the U.S. Border. This book despite containing ghost stories and dangerous encounters also helps the reader understand what an average night on patrol is like for these law enforcement officers. The author places you in the field with these brave men and women, and you will feel as if you are there in the action alongside them. Out on Foot: Nightly Patrols and Ghostly Tales of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent is perhaps one of the best edge of your seat books you will read, and you cannot help but gain a renewed respect for the most dangerous law enforcement branch in the U.S.
Praise for Out on Foot
Readers writing reviews on Amazon have described Out on Foot: “This book offers the reader an extraordinary journey into a world so far removed from normal that it almost respresents a different reality. I had very little knowledge of our border patrol officers and even less about those individuals whose mission it is to successfully cross the border into the US, some apparently two or three times the very same night! The dangers, the physical demands, the emotional stress and the drama of confronting the unknown in the black of night make the job of our border patrol agents one of the most challenging of any profession in the world.”
Others have said “I really enjoyed this book. My only complaint is that it had to end” and “Rocky Elmore has done a great job of describing many aspects of the border patrol that citizens like myself are unaware of.”
So this could be the most informative and exciting, as well as timely, book you will read about this subject this summer.
