With nothing but dogged determination, 15year-old Victor leaves his Mexican village to illegally enter the U. Soon he must outwit gangs, drug-runners, and border agents as he endures shivering nights, blistering days, and gnawing hunger. But can his longing for the beckoning opportunity of El Norte carry him through such impossible obstacles?

John admired the reverent, familiar way the old man had with the woods. But this year his grandfather is dying and year-old John must make the hunt alone. Without his beloved grandfather, the hunt is cold and lonely—until John spots the doe watching and waiting for him in the clearing. She is an easy target, but as John raises his rifle to shoot, he knows he cannot kill the vulnerable creature.

Documenta X - Die Filme Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: Beau Bridges Clel Waller Carl Lumbly John Bill Cobbs Old Man Kathleen York Callie Waller Gabriel Casseus Outlaw Tom Nowicki Chamberlain Joel Traywick Sarny Patty Mack Although the novel is intended for young people the age of twelve-year-old Sarney, it is unsparing in its depiction of slavery. The novel is written in dialect, and attempts to show the reader what it was really like to endure the pain of being considered a possession.
Despite her youth, Sarney has already seen people being beaten before her eyes, attacked by dogs, bound and chained and punished for running away. As a future slave woman, she knows she is likely to be forcibly 'bred' or subjected to serve her white master's pleasures. The actions of Nightjohn result in getting him dismembered in punishment, but Sarney and John both believe that the rewards of reading are too great and continue to try to help other slaves.
