Summary
Thomas Torrans' narrative is a sweeping history of the 2000-mile-long borderlands from the time of the early Spanish intrusions in their endless quest for gold to the recent invasions of multi-nationals in their endless quest for cheap labor. It is a fascinating story of the long struggle to establish a boundary as an institution and cultural margin of the two Americas -- an Anglo North and a Latin South
