A book of photographs by David Bacon and oral histories created during 30 years of covering the people and social movements of the Mexico/U.S. border

A complex, richly textured documentation of a world in newspaper headlines daily, but whose reality, as it’s lived by border residents, is virtually invisible.

Incisive journalism and analysis by David Bacon, Don Bartletti, Luis Escala, Guillermo Alonso and Alberto del Castillo.
