Praise

“This is a riveting, compassionate, and beautiful narrative.  I will never be able to forget this powerful book.” -John Nichols, author of The Milagro Beanfield War

“The Borderland—the trouble zone between two countries, between two languages, the poverty which is the huge shadow of affluence, the place where you live when life is impossible, the time between boyhood and manhood when a young man does crazy things, the region where the saints and the outlaws are— all these borderlands are in Urrea’s book of horrors and marvels, tenderness and rage.”- Ursula K. Le Guin, author of The Left Hand of Darkness
