Reviews

"The voices are defiant and nuanced, aware of the human complexities that spill across bureaucratic categories and arbitrary borders."
--Siddhartha Deb, The Baffler

"A deeply moving tribute to the lives of the California farm workers, and their journey from Mexican villages into the cruel machinery of American agribusiness."
-Hector Tobar, author of Deep Down Dark

"Cumulatively, these portraits form a nuanced mosaic of life in the fields--the good, the bad, the mundane, the tragic and the heroic."
-Miriam Pawel, author of The Crusades of Cesar Chavez

"Not just an intimate, but an insider, look at the lives of California's farmworkers."
--Elaine Elinson, San Francisco Chronicle
