Kimball Taylor, Emma Blad Smith – December 4, 2016

A Novel Idea, with Suzanne M. Lang, takes a look at California’s borders: the immigrants traveling over our Southern border rolling in on bicycles, and the furry, four footed immigrants, tagged and collared, reclaiming their territory on our Northern Border.

Kimball Taylor is a journalist whose curiosity reveals a story that sometimes reads like a bizarre work of fiction. The Coyote’s Bicycle, The Untold Story of Seven Thousand Bicycles and the Rise of a Borderline Empire follows trails leading from San Diego, Tijuana, and across the country’s military complexes. Taylor unearths incredible stories of human migration across our Southern Border and the bicycles that travel even further.

Emma Bland Smith has created a beautiful picture book, Journey: Based on the True Story of OR7, the Most Famous Wolf in the West, that portrays the story of OR-7, who came to be known as Journey, the first gray wolf to return to California in nearly 100 years.
