Award-winning travel writer Stephanie Elizondo Griest’s All the Agents and Saints: Dispatches from the U.S. Borderlands is a meditation on the lands on the fringes of the nation, and those who live on that periphery. From examining her changing native home of South Texas to hearing stories from Mohawks from the Akwesasne Nation, Griest weaves together a narrative of places both north and south marked by the legacy of colonialism and the practices of the Border Patrol. Her other titles include Around the Bloc: My Life in Moscow, Beijing, and Havana and Mexican Enough.
