- DescriptionWhen falling crop prices threaten his family with starvation, fifteen-year-old Victor Flores heads rth in an attempt to cross the wire from Mexico into the United States so he can find work and send money home. But with coyote money to pay the smugglers who sneak illegal workers across the border, Victor must struggle to survive as he jumps trains, stows away on trucks, and hikes grueling miles through the Arizona desert. Victor's journey is fraught with danger, freezing cold, scorching heat, hunger, and dead ends. It's a gauntlet run by millions attempting to cross the border. Through Victor's often desperate struggle, Will Hobbs brings to life one of the great human dramas of our time.
