Border of Death, Valley of Life:

An Immigrant Journey of Heart and Spirit

by Daniel G. Groody, CSC, ’86 (Rowman & Littlefield)


Notre Dame’s associate director of the Institute of Latino Studies offers a spiritual narrative of Mexican immigrants who cross the border, their faith strong, their desperation deep.

The author talked with immigration officials, “coyote” smugglers, immigrants in detention centers and those working in the fields. Views of God, family, values, suffering, faith and hope shine through the conversations.
