Product description

Review

A Remezcla Best Book by Latine or Latin American Authors of the Year

A beautiful read. --Ari Shapiro, All Things Considered, NPR

Lyrical . . . Part travelogue, part traditional memoir . . . The story of the striving, first-generation kid made good is a familiar one; Álvarez makes his ache. --The New York Times Book Review

More than another tale of blistered feet and dehydration. It's about the immigrant experience, about the indigenous experience--and finding one's place as a witness when you're neither. --Salon

A spellbinding narrative of his coming to terms with his place in America today . . . This literary tour de force beautifully combines outdoor adventure with a sharp take on immigration. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

This book is not like any other out there . . . A beautiful run. --Luís Alberto Urrea, author of The Devil's Highway
