This is an agonizing true story of a human smuggling attempt gone wrong using a well-known corridor between Mexico and the US called the Devil's Highway. 26 people smuggled into the US during this attempt died, and the leader was brought to trial and sentenced to jail. The remaining survivors were awarded immunity for their testimony and remained in the States - but some were so severely injured by their near-death experience that they are now trying to get back to Mexico. This was a no-win situation that shines a human light on all the personal stories on all sides. This book is as relevant today as it was in 2004.
Describes the harrowing May 2001 attempt of twenty-six men to cross the Mexican border into the desert of southern Arizona, a region known as the Devil's Highway, detailing their harrowing ordeal and battle for survival against impossible odds on a trek that cost fourteen lives.
