With unprecedented access, Cartel Land is a harrowing look at the journeys of two modern-day vigilante groups and their shared enemy-the murderous Mexican drug cartels. In the Mexican state of Michoacán, Dr.Jose Mireles, a small-town physician known as “El Doctor,” leads the Autodefensas, a citizen uprising against the violent Knights Templar drug cartel that has wreaked havoc on the region for years. Meanwhile, in Arizona’s Altar Valley Tim “Nailer” Foley, an American veteran, heads a small paramilitary group called Arizona Border Recon.
