Also, there are several video clips, including on YouTube, if you search "La tradición del vaquero en Baja California"

That's it! Thank you. I thought it was a whole film for some reason but that's it. Maybe the whole film isn't released yet.
Thanks!

If anyone feels moved to help, Trudi recommends Andy Schouten in San Diego, who has an NGO called Commitment that has served many projects in the Sierra San Francisco area over the years. Gifts are tax deductible.

The website is https://www.makeacommitment.org/food-distribution

A note from the Baja Nomad site about him and the focus (thank you David): http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=95852

In Baja, these leather lower-leg guards are called polainas. I was very grateful to borrow a pair once, on a ride through thorny thickets.

Photo of Trudi from the National Geographic article. I love this photo of her. She's wearing her "Mula Mil" vest, reminiscent of her 1000-mile mule ride a few years back.

A little off topic but I just finished "Mission Walker" by Edie Sundby. Part of her story is about walking the California missions along El Camino Real, and then she got inspired to walk all the Baja California missions. She essentially had a Baja vaquero guide to find and follow the El Camino Real, usually on a mule or horseback, with a mule for gear - she walked when she could, when she wasn't injured or the pathway too dense with thorn thickets to go through on foot. The handling of the animals and terrain by the vaqueros was fascinating. They and often ended up at some rural far-flung rancho that always put them up with a welcome. Almost always these ranchos were hard-scrabble, barely getting along. I was so impressed with her journey (AND that her lung cancer surgery took part of her lung), and the ranchero guides who participated; descriptions through her "lens". Another glimpse into this unique aspect that is Baja California. Trudi is mentioned and had a hand at facilitating some of Edie's travel.

Edie has been interviewed on the Slow Baja podcast if you want to hear more about her cancer and Baja journey.

Pricey book

I am rather astounded at the price of that book, which ranges from $350 to over $900 in the places I have checked.

I purchased mine a few years ago and I think it was in the $30-$40 range. Some of these books are selling high since they are out of print especially the really good ones.

A great way to spend part of my Sunday afternoon!! Thanks!

The YouTube clip of Corazón Vaquero: The Heart of the Cowboy is 22 1/2 minutes long and stops abruptly... a quick search indicates the full movie is just over an hour long, and it's nowhere to be found at a reasonable price. I'd love to see the rest of this!! Anybody have a lead on where to buy/borrow/rent the DVD?

I have it on DVD, a well-done piece of film work. I believe I ordered after a Nomad posted about it.? His name was 'McClintock' and he or a family member was a producer, along with Eve Ewing and Harry Crosby.

Here's my review from 2008: http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=29881

For sale now on Amazon ($28-$84): https://www.amazon.com/Corazon-Vaquero-Heart-Cowboy/dp/B001C...

Thanks David. I checked Amazon. Shipping to Canada is exorbitant pricing, so if and when the border allows us Canadians to cross back into the U.S. (I spend my winters there....) I'll order one up then. Hoping I can find one closer to home first though.

Yes, tell me about it!
I have to add $15 to the price, if one of my books is mailed to Canada, plus the paperwork I need to fill out. What happened to our free-trade deal? Sorry about that!
If you get across the border, you are welcome to come here and watch the movie and the beer is on me! Viva Baja! I am freeway close in San Diego County!

Thank you for sharing this. I remember reading an older, from the 80s, NatGeo article about the Californios ,as a young boy growing up halfway around the world from California. It made quite the impression on me.

15 years later, I was living in San Diego, beginning to explore Baja, and never imagined that I'd actually get to keeping going year after year. My wife still doesn't get my obsession.
