Venture Literary Sells an Insider's Look at the Border Patrol to Citadel Press
On August 21, 2002, Frank R. Scatoni of Venture Literary sold the rights to The Last True Cowboys by Alex Pacheco and Erich Krauss to Bruce Bender of Citadel Press.
For the first time ever, Border Patrol agent Alex Pacheco and journalist Erich Krauss take the reader where few have gone beforethe desolate canyons and mountains where Border Patrol agents risk their lives twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week in undercover operations. The Last True Cowboys describes where Border Patrol agents come from, the rigorous training they endure in the academy and in the field, and the methods they employ to protect our borders from illegal aliens, drug smugglers, and terrorists.
Much like the best-selling Making the Corps (about a Marine corps boot camp) and See No Evil (about CIA operatives), The Last True Cowboys offers an unprecedented glimpse at the men and women who help protect our country. Through tales of victory and defeat, Pacheco and Krauss bring these forgotten agents into the spotlight, and tell the story of the last of a dying breed of law enforcement agents.
Pacheco, an agent for five years and numerous Outstanding Service Awards, is the ultimate insider who is still on the front lines. Krauss, a veteran journalist, is also the author of two other books, Brawl and Little Evil.
