When Rocky Elmore joined the United States Border Patrol, he knew it would be a journey fraught with danger. But little did he know that the very real trails he walked night after night would soon lead him into surreal encounters from a different dimension. This was never more evident than when the ghost of a recently fallen fellow agent began to appear on top of the cliff from which he died. It marked the beginning of the end to one of the most bizarre series of events in the history of the US Border Patrol.
This collection of true stories provides a rare look into law enforcement that includes not only the routine nightly patrols of the USBP but also actual paranormal activity as it happened to the agents in the field. Listeners will go on nightly patrols with the agents of the Brown Field Border Patrol Station, and will face their worst fears as they come face to face with smugglers, mountain lions, ghosts, and even a Sasquatch in this isolated no-man's land. Out on Foot takes place in the mysterious Otay Mountains just east of San Diego, California. It is an emotional roller coaster ride that is not for the faint of heart.

Having heard Rocky on several radio shows and whilst preparing to interview him for my own, I splashed out on this book. I'm so glad I did.
If you have an interest in Law Enforcement and anything more than a passing interest in the paranormal, then this is most certainly the book for you.
I enjoyed this book immensely and came away with a tremendous respect for the border patrol. Even without the spooky happenings it takes tremendous courage to patrol our borders! There are certainly some interesting tales to ponder in this book and it raises more questions than answers. Drives the point home (at least to me) that there is more out there than we can explain.
"Spine tingling non-fiction, awesome!"
This story is incredible. The facts as the author has strung them together and the inflection of the narrator's voice at just the right moments kept me in such a state of anticipation I could hardly wait to hear the next encounter. I highly recommend Out on Foot.
A great look into the border patrol and what they do.
Excellent narration, the guy's voice is really well suited to this kind of story. Sounds a bit like stories told around a campfire.
"Makes you want to change jobs. Great audio book!"
Definitely one of the best audio books I have listened to. The story is entertaining and I have no doubts that it is true. The narrator selected was a perfect choice for the book, giving a non-stop, great delivery!
I am fortunate enough to know that parts of this story are absolutely true. I did not work for
the Border Patrol but, I have been fortunate enough to have received some training from them.
Palmer gives the performance of a seasoned professional.
"You can run but, you can't hide!"
Excellent! On of the best audio books of my considerable collection.
"Never knew the rigors of being a BP Agent until no"
Awesome story, was capitulated the entire time. Not enough credit is given to border patrol.
I can't believe I've been so ignorant about the facts of everyday happenings by these men and women. Definitely will be looking at them much differently and with way more respect now thank you.
"Mandatory Reading !"
Would have liked more ghostly encounters. However it did make the hair on the back of my neck stand up at certain times. I loved the narrator, it could have been the author himself, the passion the author feels about telling this story is palpable when listening to it. I think this book should be mandatory reading for every politician who thinks they know anything about the borders in this country. I had no idea, and since reading this book, my eyes have been opened and I have a whole new respect for our border patrol agents. They need to build the wall twenty feet high and have armed guards on top of it. The life of one border patrol man or women is worth more than all the illegals put together. If you disagree read the book or better yet listen and have your blood boil.
