Product Description: Manuel Luis Martínez explores the American obsession with mobility, the irrepressible hope that there must be something better somewhere and the relentless desire to move on in search of this elusive goal. Inspired by a newspaper account of thirteen undocumented workers left to suffocate in a boxcar outside El Paso, Crossing tells the story of Luis, a boy who leaves his small town in Mexico to seek his fortune in the United States.
