Synopsis: Escrito con pasión y compromiso, este libro narra la historia de una familia, de un pueblo y de un mundo movimiento. Este es el recuento épico y conmovedor de una familia mexicana de migrantes, sus peripecias en Estados Unidos y las expectativas del pueblo que dejaron atrás. La frontera entre México y Estados Unidos es uno de los limites mas permeables del mundo. Aunque el gobierno estadunidense destina billones de dolares y un vasto arsenal para mantener el control de la migración ilegal, la frontera es atravesada diariamente por mexicanos en busca de trabajo. Sin embargo, la aventura del migrante es peligrosa: miles mueren en el intento y aquellos que logran llegar al otro lado están marcados como ilegales, sin documentación ni protección alguna. El periodista Ruben Martinez le da un rostro humano a este fenomeno al seguir el éxodo del clan Chavez, una familia mexicana con la desoladora distinción de haber perdido a tres hijos en un incidente trágico en la frontera. El autor realiza un seguimiento del recorrido de la familia desde Cheran, su pequeño pueblo en el sur del pais y a lo largo del angustioso viaje clandestino en tren hacia las granjas de tomates en Missouri. los campos de fresas en California y los mataderos de Wisconsin. Martinez revela los electos de la migracion en los miembros de la familia que han quedado atrás y ofrece un poderoso retrato de la cultura del migrante, un intercambio que lleva el hip-hop a los pueblos indígenas de México así como la música popular mexicana a las llanuras del norte. Martinez argumenta que, lejos de unirse a la cultura norteamericano, los siete millones de migrantes ilegales en Estados Unidos están generando una nueva cultura que afectara a ambos países; Latinoamerica y Estados Unidos están comenzado a parecerse cada vez mas. --- from book's back cover
