“There are not enough stars in the rating system to accurately explain how important this book is. … Every word is important and every story heartbreaking. Every fact astonishing but true. I thank Sam for keeping this conversation going and for bringing research and heart to the table.”

A suburban mother and recovering addict/NetGalleys


“The most original American writer on the border and Mexico out there.”
