Description:

The author explores the world of Mexican migrant workers who, unable to eke out a modest living in their homeland, have come to the United States. Readers are told horrific stories of border crossings including one man's journey riding suspended from the undercarriage of a train in this behind-the-scenes look at Mexican migrants.
