If you are a registered Welcome Interactive 2022 conference attendee, then you may pick up your copy of the book in-person. At checkout, please select “I will pick up my order on May 19th at Welcome Interactive 22”.

From a Pulitzer Prize finalist, “the single most compelling, lucid, and lyrical contemporary account of the absurdity of U.S. border policy” (The Atlantic).

In May 2001, a group of men attempted to cross the Mexican border into the desert of southern Arizona, through the deadliest region of the continent, the “Devil’s Highway.” Three years later, Luis Alberto Urrea wrote about what happened to them. The result was a national bestseller, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, a “book of the year” in multiple newspapers, and a work proclaimed as a modern American classic.
