Summary
"A poetic narrative of a pursuit of the American dream on one of the world's most compelling and dangerous international borders, El Paso/Juarez. Leaving behind her life in Juarez, Sandoval's mother finds herself isolated and alone in the gritty projects of El Paso. Her new life begins with a crossing of the Rio Grande led by a "coyote" who drowns while saving her from river undercurrents. In the projects, a local drug addict rapes her. She then has to contend with finding a better place to raise her children, while still gravitating to her homeland, Mexico, connecting to her roots and family while avoiding becoming engulfed in a cycle of poverty within sight of the American dream."--Page 4 of cover
