Joe Tone - Bones: Brothers, Horses, Cartels, and the Borderland Dream

Upcoming Event
Monday, August 21, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The title of Tone’s fascinating account of life on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border points to the brutal tactics of the area’s drug traffickers, but it also refers to the name of a champion quarter horse. When Jose Trevino, a Mexican-born Dallas bricklayer of modest means, bid close to a million dollars to win Bones at auction, the FBI got interested. Tone, former editor of the Dallas Observer, traces the government’s investigation as it uncovered a major drug laundering scheme behind the horseracing. He also follows the very different fates of Jose, a hardworking family man who loved horses, and the man behind the money laundering: Jose’s older brother Miguel, a leader of the notorious Zeta drug cartel.
