More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
After writing Into a Desert Place: A 3000-Mile Walk Around the Coast of Baja California, Mackintosh returns with this account of his 1000-mile journey by burro from the California border to the oldest established mission in Loreto, located in the southern part of the Baja peninsula. Along the way, he describes the land, the people he meets, the missions he visits, and his travails with the burro. The book is well written and generally keeps the reader's interest but can become repetitive, especially when Mackintosh describes his problems with the burro. Libraries owning Jud Goldstein Botello's The Other Side: Journeys in Baja California (LJ 8/98) and Bruce Berger's Almost an Island: Travels in Baja California (LJ 7/98) may consider purchasing this title as a nice complement.--John McCormick, New Hampshire State Lib., Concord Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
From The Critics
In Journey With A Baja Burro, adventure traveler Graham Mackintosh returns to the remote desert setting of his previous book in his expedition a thousand miles from the U.S. border south to Loreto. He and his burro follow the trail which leads to most of the mission sites along the way; his humorous first-person account will intrigue a wide audience.

    This Brit has True Grit!

    This is a great adventure story that has it all--an arduous physical challenge, plus a spiritual journey that really made me think...And the best thing is, it's all true. This brit has real grit and a great sense of humor, and I'm not even gonna get started on his charismatic burro! This book is a real find, I couldn't stop reading, but didn't want the journey to end!
