Part One of Crossing Borders: In this part:
Bronwyn Ximm has a One-minute Vacation, this one from the Lunes de Cerro festival in Oaxaca. "And I walked..." (with Charles Bowden) is a border-crossing sound-portrait by Ann Heppermann and Kara Oehler. Guillermo Gómez-Peña imagines "Maquiladoras of the Future," fantasy border factories. And Luis Alberto Urrea reads from "The Devil's Highway," his book about death in the desert.
