Summary:
"Robert Kaiser's photographs and Levi Romero's poems find grace in tragedy, elegance in seediness, pride in despair, and moments of joy along the border between the U.S. and Mexico. Spencer Herrera provides narrative context for the photographs and poetry, and together these pieces will form a tightly unified story of the borderlands"-- Provided by publisher.
