Summary
Both an award-winning journalist and a poet, Martinez tracks a migrant family from Mexico to the U.S., and shows how migrant culture is changing America. 13 illustrations. The U.S.-Mexican border is one of the most permeable boundaries in the world, breached daily by Mexicans in search of work. Thousands die crossing the line and those who reach "the other side" are branded illegals, undocumented and unprotected. Crossing Over puts a human face on the phenomenon, following the exodus of the Chaacute;vez clan, an extended Mexican family who lost three sons in a tragic border accident. Martiacute;nez follows the migrants' progress from their small southern Mexican town of Cheraacute;n to California, Wisconsin, and Missouri where far from joining the melting pot, Martiacute;nez argues, the seven million migrants in the U.S. are creating a new culture that will alter both Mexico and the United States as the two countries come increasingly to resemble each other
