"First-rate reporting on an important, controversial subject."
"It is an intimate and tender story of family ties, the survival of traditions and an up-close travel narrative of how brutal and miraculous illegal immigration can be."
From the Publisher
Annotation A journalist explores the lives of the Mexican migrants that come from the small city of Zamora--a place where the future can only be glimpsed beyond the horizon.
Editors Note A powerful account of migrant culture traces the Chavez family as they leave their southern-Mexican town and embark on a perilous journey through the underground railroad to the tomato farms of Missouri, the strawberry fields of California, and the slaughterhouses of Wisconsin.
