Finally! A story that humanizes the migrant field worker,
By A Customer
This review is from: Dead in Their Tracks: Crossing America's Desert Borderlands (Hardcover)
The author has walked a mile in the other man's shoes to tell the story of the many honest migrant workers who defy death by crossing the U.S.-Mexico border during the searing summer season for below poverty line wages to work in the vegetable fields of the U.S.'s Southwest. He also tells the story of several law enforcement officers who risk their own lives to prevent them from doing so. The text is accompanied at the most precisely dramatic moments by stunning, shocking photographs that are made all the more poignant by the deserved homage paid by the author to the human beings who have lost their lives in an ironic attempt to improve them.
