Product Details


“Portrays [its] characters with rare objectivity; Ellingwood writes with compassion for people on both sides of the border. . . . At times the stories become as dramatic as any good fiction.” –The San Diego Union-Tribune“The bodies moving north across the border are stories. This is a book as much about people as it is about policy. Ken Ellingwood has gathered here the voices with compassion, with wisdom.” –Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street“Well chronicled. . . . Eminently readable.” –San Francisco Chronicle“Ellingwood has thoroughly and compassionately catalogued the stories of the major players in the border saga. . . . Disturbing and graphic.” –The Washington Post Book World“Skillfully charts the devastating effects . . . on migrants and the communities receiving them. Ellingwood seamlessly moves between a cogent policy analysis, an overview of the border’s early history, and stories of migrants, ranchers, border patrol agents, human-rights and church activists.” –LA Weekly
