"Urrea uses the story of 26 men attempting to cross the US/Mexico border in 2001 (only twelve survived) as a way to examine the ridiculousness of the politics that exist on both sides of the borders, as well as the face of inhumanity. This book is tragic and stunning. A must read!"— Jen Mo
The author of "Across the Wire" offers brilliant investigative reporting of what went wrong when, in May 2001, a group of 26 men attempted to cross the Mexican border into the desert of southern Arizona. Only 12 men came back out. "Superb . . . Nothing less than a saga on the scale of the Exodus and an ordeal as heartbreaking as the Passion . . . The book comes vividly alive with a richness of language and a mastery of narrative detail that only the most gifted of writers are able to achieve.--"Los Angeles Times Book Review."
