Among Walkers (Paperback)
Marisol finds herself unable to take care of her daughter Julia, following the death of her husband in Venezuela. As the country crumbles around her, Marisol makes the decision to leave and join the masses to walk to Peru in search of a better life. As the days pass, her feet become swollen and heavy. They ache as she puts one foot in front of the other. She wonders how she is going to walk across an entire continent, if on the fourth day she can barely feel her legs. Her childhood friend, Jes's, walks ahead of her on the long road toward Pamplona, while she slowly plods along, whispering into Julia's ear. Her baby girl is the one thing that will keep her going. She knows this.
She and Julia are now among the caminantes, the walkers. The ones who dare to go out on their own in search of survival.
