Overview
A gripping reflection of life on the border between the United States and Mexico, this novel combines contemporary sensibilities with pre-Colombian myth as it relates the story of Makina, a young, temperamental, and free-spirited girl searching for her missing brother. Throughout her journey, Makina is forced to rely on her ingenuity to survive nine legendary quests in a hostile and dangerous world. Borrowing liberally from Western and indigenous mythic traditions, the story reframes a familiar struggle--that of undocumented immigrants--in an imaginative and unique way, while never compromising the fundamental and moving humanity of its heroine.

Una apasionante reflexi n de la vida en la frontera de los Estados Unidos y M xico, esta novela combina sensibilidades modernas con la mitolog a precolombina mientras relata la historia de Makina, una joven temperamental y libre que busca a su hermano desaparecido. A lo largo de su camino, Makina tiene que depender de su ingenio para completar nueve etapas mitol gicas en un mundo hostil y peligroso. Con referencias m ticas provenientes tanto de la tradici n occidental como de la ind gena, esta historia presenta una lucha familiar--la de los inmigrantes indocumentados--en una manera imaginativa y nica, pero nunca comprometa la humanidad fundamental y conmovedora de su hero na.
