Offers much more than just a very smart and companionable tour of the country's ragged edges. It offers a model for how a curious person, any person who is sufficiently interested, can begin to navigate the boundaries that compartmentalize our country, and ourselves, toward wholeness.--Brad Tyer, Texas Observer

An exploration of the borderlands that deftly mixes memoir, groundbreaking sociology, deep reporting, and compelling writing. . . . Demonstrates unforgettably that national borders constitute much more than lines on a map.--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Elizondo Griest glimpses the modern immigrant experience through the lives of people who live in more than one culture. . . . Wrestles with profound questions of identity and belonging in a constantly shifting and increasingly unstable world.--Publishers Weekly

Some books that you read affect you emotionally because you insert yourself into the story and partially absorb the plotline. Other books can change your destiny [.... ] Such is the work combining all of the above by Stephanie Elizondo Griest in All the Agents and Saints. --Charles Kader, Indian Country News Media
