Im­mi­grat­ing from the vil­lage of La Ceja, Mex­ico, to Texas in 1980 was a scary jour­ney for young Al­fredo Alva and his papá, but with courage, hope, and de­ter­mi­na­tion, they paved the way for a bet­ter life for their fam­ily. Years later, Al­fredo’s story is an in­spi­ra­tion, told in al­ter­nat­ing English and Span­ish with pho­to­graphs of the Al­vas, col­or­ful art­work, maps, and thought­ful in­for­ma­tion on bor­ders, im­mi­gra­tion laws, and the im­por­tance of tra­di­tion and cul­ture.
