• Affectionately known as “Juanita” by everyone in her adopted home in the small village of San Ignacio, Ms. Ames has lived in the town’s original guest-house a half block off the main plaza for 20 years. During that time she has absorbed and added to the sense of slow-paced and friendly atmosphere unique to this oasis in the heart of the peninsula. Her love of the history and the people shines through the stories and timelines she captures. A wonderful way to immerse into a small-town’s history and soak up a sense-of place.

  • Rarely visited by outsiders, the ranchers of Sierra de la Giganta in Baja California Sur live much as their ancestors have for the past two centuries. They raise goats and cattle and grow a magnificent variety of fruits, vegetables, and flowers in one of the driest places on the continent. The men, women, and children depicted in this book have never known the luxury of municipal water or electricity on their ranches. Yet, as Marchand's photographs show, they are remarkably self-sufficient in their use of technologies that would be considered archaic by most standards today.
  • Elizabeth Moreno D. was born in La Paz, Baja California Sur. She has gathered photographic memories over the years of her favorite subject, the people and ranch culture of the peninsula’s southern mountain ranges. Elizabeth was also the main photographer of the documentary film La Recua – the mule pack train in 2018. Subsequently her coffee-table style hardcover book is a wonderful tribute to BCS families and their stories. Bilingual excerpts in a well-organized afterword describe the photos and their subjects.
