Migrant: The Journey of a Mexican Worker Hardcover – April 15, 2014
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
Unfolding like an accordion revealing one long, vertical image, Migrant presents a childlike drawing, in charcoal blacks and grays, of numerous minute figures, trees, trains, and houses. An author’s note explains the construction of the book (codex) and the unique style of drawing and imagery (amate) before discoursing on the human-rights issues that drive the story. The nine-fold image itself moves from crowded village life through a harrowing train journey to a modern cityscape, all the while accompanied on the left-hand side by the relatively brief but affecting story of a young boy who must leave his small farming village and migrate illegally to Los Angeles. Once there, he, along with his mother and his sisters, finds work, but he still must search for the father who preceded them. A striking, thoughtful, and empathetic look at a difficult and very relevant political issue, Migrant will make an excellent starting point for possible classroom discussions. On the reverse of the English version, the same image is accompanied by a solid, straightforward Spanish translation. Grades 2-5. --Jesse Karp
