A journalist/editor with Pacific News Service and PBS's Religion & Ethics Newsweekly traces the journey of a Mexican family who lost three sons in a 1996 border incident as illegal migrants to US farms and slaughterhouses, and the bilateral cultural impacts. Includes photos from both sides of the border. References would have enhanced this otherwise fine reportage. Lacks an index.
