Don Henry Ford, Jr., is an unapologetic outlaw. For seven years he made his living smuggling marijuana across the U.S.-Mexico border in the Big Bend region of Texas. His business partners were some of the era''s biggest "narcotraficantes" like Pablo Acosta and Amado Carrillo Fuentes. After Ford was arrested and imprisoned, he escaped and lived for a year in rural Mexico, raising a bumper crop of weed and hiding out from the "federales," before his recapture and return to the penitentiary.

"Contrabando" is the extraordinary, unabashed memoir of a rebel -- a warrior on the other side of the War on Drugs who lived to tell the tale. But more than a riveting and remarkable true crime confession, "Contrabando" is an ode to the beauty of the dry, dusty West Texas plains and the lonely hills of Mexico -- and a tribute to Ford''s friends, protectors, and fellow outlaws who stood by him during the dangerous smuggling years.

From the Publisher:
A candid memoir by an original Texas outlaw details the author's career as a drug smuggler moving marijuana across the U.S.-Mexico border, discussing his relationship with some of the most notorious narcotraficantes of the era, his arrest and conviction, and his five-year prison term in a maximum security facility.
