In Solito: A Memoir, author Javier Zamora tells the story of his 3,000 mile journey from El Salvador across the U.S. border.

An intimate account of a treacherous and near-impossible passage and of miraculous kindness and love delivered at the most unexpected moments, Zamora’s story is also the story of millions of others who had no choice but to leave home.
