REVIEW: The Devil’s Highway

OK, I know this one is more than a decade old now. But when I read and loved American Dirt, this was the book that was recommended to give a more accurate representation of what it’s like to cross the border. I enjoyed the narrative and the detail about this people who tried to cross the border, each with their own motivations and feats. Some of it is very hard to read. It’s one thing to read a book about survival traveling through the desert, which in itself is brutal… But the unnecessary brutality of the coyotes and the government officials towards other humans is quite horrific.

I appreciate it all of the data and facts and figures to back up what illegal immigration means to both US and Mexico. Although these numbers are 10 years old I think the average American is not aware of them and believes a lot of political rhetoric rather than the truth. 

I did this one on audiobook and the narrator was quite good at reading what could be sometimes emotional and sometimes dry text and keeping you engaged in it all. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I finally read this one in honor of Hispanic heritage month… Are you reading anything this month by Hispanic/Latine authors?
