This is the tale of the Chavez family of Michoacan, Mexico. Members of this family cross over the border to work in the United States, only to encounter hardship and tragedy. It is an exploration of what drives poor Mexican families to risk their lives to come north.

"A moving account of a familyâ¿¿s odyssey by one of the brightest voices of a new generation of Hispanic writers.â¿¿ (The Washington Post)
Incredibly vivid interpretation by Dario Tangleson and totally catching narration by Ruben Martinez.
I liked the narrator the most for his style and the way of observing the world.
He brings so much life to each character and to the entire book.
I like the title as it is.
This book reminds me the best of Ryszard Kapuscinski stories.
