Review:

"A powerful and sensitive interpretation. . . . The narrative, combined with Dusard's crisp photographs, accurately captures the limbo of a borderlands region that is neither Mexican nor North American. Highly recommended."—Library Journal"Weisman's empathetic prose documents the aspirations and challenges of men, women and children exposed daily to the dynamics of the extended frontier. . . . Dusard's exquisite black-and-white photos add a humanistic dimension that make La Frontera an unusual study."—San Diego Tribune"This peerless, beautifully illustrated work cannot be too highly recommended."—Latin America in Books"La Frontera takes us on a sometimes bumpy but always buoyant journey of the nearly 2,000 miles which make up the boundary between the United States and Mexico. . . . Rich in border flavor and journalistic prose."—Southern California Quarterly"Newcomers and natives alike will come away with fresh insights and a deeper appreciation of the clash and blend of peoples and lifestyles in the southwestern borderland."—The Journal of Arizona History

From Library Journal:

Journalist Weisman and photographer Dusard have combined their talents to offer a powerful and sensitive interpretation of the 2000-mile border region between Mexico and the United States. Although Weisman does not offer solutions to the overriding issuesincluding drug trafficking, illegal immigration, pollution, cultural differenceshis sympathetic portrait suggests numerous perspectives, allowing various characters ranging from border patrol agents to drug dealers to present their own views. The narrative, combined with Dusard's crisp photographs, accurately captures the limbo of a borderlands region that is neither Mexican nor North American. Highly recommended for most libraries.
