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.
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.
