Immigrating from the village of La Ceja, Mexico, to Texas in 1980 was a scary journey for young Alfredo Alva and his papá, but with courage, hope, and determination, they paved the way for a better life for their family. Years later, Alfredo’s story is an inspiration, told in alternating English and Spanish with photographs of the Alvas, colorful artwork, maps, and thoughtful information on borders, immigration laws, and the importance of tradition and culture.
