Nineteen-year-old Nayeli works at a taco shop in her Mexican village and dreams about her father, who journeyed to the US to find work. Recently, it has dawned on her that he isn''t the only man who has left town. In fact, there are almost no men in the village--they''ve all gone north. While watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli decides to go north herself and recruit seven men--her own "Siete Magnficos"--to repopulate her hometown and protect it from the bandidos who plan on taking it over.

Filled with unforgettable characters and prose as radiant as the Sinaloan sun, INTO THE BEAUTIFUL NORTH is the story of an irresistible young woman''s quest to find herself on both sides of the fence.

From the Publisher:
Working in a Mexican taco shop while dreaming of the father who left their family to work in the United States, nineteen-year-old Nayeli struggles with a realization that most of the men in her village have left to pursue work in the north; a situation for which she endeavors to recruit seven men to repopulate her hometown and protect it from bandidos. Simultaneous.Nayeli es una chica de diecinueve años que trabaja en una taquería de tres Camarones, un poblado mexicano. Ve en sueños a su padre, que emigró al norte cuando era niña. Recientemente se ha dado cuenta de que su padre no es el único hombre que se ha ido del pueblo, de hecho ya casi no quedan hombres, todos se han ido al otro lado, a los Estados Unidos. Un grupo de narcotraficantes también se ha percatado de ese hecho y ven la oportunidad para apoderarse.


Pero una noche, durante la exhibición de la película Los Siete Magníficos, Nayeli tiene una revelación: Debe dirigirse al norte a reclutar sus propios Siete Magníficos, para que la protejan de los criminales y coadyuven a repoblar Tres Camarones. Ella y sus amigas viajan al norte y en el camino hacia esa extraña y fascinante tierra de sus sueños, ese mítico lugar donde su padre desapareció, van sumando una colección de inusitados y sorprendentes aliados. La meta es un poblado del estado de Illinois, donde Nayeli espera encontrar a su padre y reclutar a sus guerreros. Con suerte, hará realidad también su destino.

Sometimes as U.S. citizens, we get wrapped up into our own little worlds and assume that everybody thinks and feels the same ways we do. This book provides a reality check. We see through the eyes of Nayeli, a nineteen year old girl from Tres Camarones, Mexico. who notices the scarce number of men left because of many that left to the U.S. and recognizes a need to save their village from being targeted by banderios. The Magnificent Seven, a Mexican cast movie about bringing seven Hispanic Americans back to save a village, inspires her to start a mission, dragging along her friends Tacho, Yolo, and Vampi, to cross the U.S. border....read the full review
