Cutting For Sign

cutting forOriginally published in 1993, author William Langewiesche took an in-depth look at the United States-Mexico border.  As is typical of Langewiesche’s work he immersed himself into his subject.  He returned to an area in which he had worked as a bush pilot.  This story touches on many hot button issues like illegal immigration and drugs, but the author goes much deeper and gives us a glimpse of the lives of many of those nameless people and tells their side.  We learn of their desires to improve their lives and you might be appalled to read about their treatment on both sides of the border in Cutting for Sign.
