Summary
  • Based on the Los Angeles Times series that won two Pulitzer Prizes, this is a timeless story of families torn apart. When Enrique was five, his mother, too poor to feed her children, left Honduras to work in the United States. The move allowed her to send money back home so Enrique could eat better and go to school past the third grade. She promised she would return quickly, but she struggled in America. Without her, he became lonely and troubled. After eleven years, he decided he would go find her. He set off alone, with little more than a slip of paper bearing his mother's North Carolina telephone number. Without money, he made the dangerous trek up the length of Mexico, clinging to the sides and tops of freight trains. He and other migrants, many of them children, are hunted like animals. To evade bandits and authorities, they must jump onto and off the moving boxcars they call the Train of Death. It is an epic journey, one thousands of children make each year to find their mothers in the United States.--From publisher description
  • "Basado en la serie publicada por el periodico Los Angeles Times que ganó dos premios Pulitzer--uno por el reportaje, el otro por la fotografía-- La travesía de Enrique es una historia para todos los tiempos sobre familias desgarradas por la separación, sobre el anhelo de volver a estar juntos y sobre eun niño que arriesgará su vida para reencontrarse con la madre que ama"--Cover
