Summary "Este es el recuento épico y conmovedor de una familia mexicana de migrantes, sus peripecias en Estados Unidos y las expectativas del pueblo que dejaron atrás."
Martínez follows the migrants' progress from their small southern Mexican town of Cherán to California, Wisconsin, and Missouri where far from joining the melting pot, Martínez argues, the seven million migrants in the U.S. are creating a new culture that will alter both Mexico and the United States as the two countries come increasingly to resemble each other.
