Phillip Caputo insists that you read the book on his terms. It's long, and not a quick read. Yet if you will indulge him, there is indeed a reward. Crossers is a great tale of human interests and history. In this case, the border with Mexico and its long history of smuggling, crossing, and corruption. An Arizona ranch on the borderline is the focus of the story, featuring not only the current residents but their ancestors, the history of whom is essential to the story. Not only is the book educational, it carries human drama starting with the 9-11 tragedy and continues to drug smuggling and corruption in Mexico leading to narco-terrorism. What Caputo does is bring the story alive, making you care about the main characters, Castle in particular, but also those whose lives are tragically caught up in the drama between Mexico and its northern neighbor.
