In Pescando en Mexico, A.M. Harper films his journey through Mexico culminating in a fishing expedition in Mazatlan on the Pacific coast, capturing scenes of the landscape, architecture, and daily life along the way.
Born in Yorktown, Texas in 1901, Albert Morris “A.M.” Harper was a longtime resident of Alice where he owned and operated a successful oil field trucking company.  Financial success followed from the early boom in the Texas oil industry and enabled Harper to enjoy a recreational home in Port Aransas and many adventurous pursuits, including safari expeditions in Africa and Alaska.
