Krista Schlyer reads and shows photos from her book Continental Divide: Wildlife, People and the Border Wall, which depicts the wildlife, ecology and people of the US-Mexico borderlands. The book was published in 2012 by Texas A&M University Press and has won several national literary awards, including the National Outdoor Book Award for 2013.
