Reviews

"Thompson uses his travels to share his passion for the welfare of hard-working, good people, and to persuade his readers that such people have been trapped and exploited by a flawed immigration system. "--D.G. Martin"Winston-Salem Journal" (04/27/2015)
"[Thompson] sought a firsthand look at how modern U.S. border policy has affected the people in the region, from migrant workers to indigenous people to border patrol agents to residents of economically stagnant towns just north of the boundary. The result is a travel memoir with a conscience, an extension of Thompson s ongoing work to humanize the hotly debated region."--Corbie Hill"The News & Observer" (06/20/2015)"
"Does Border Odyssey bring us any closer to dissolving entrenched divisions and ingrained attitudes about the border? In presenting the struggles and strife of this place and its people with honesty and hope, Thompson shows the possibility and potential of such a beautiful dream."--Yvette Benavides"The Texas Observer" (07/21/2015)
