A 6,000-Mile Marathon Through North America's Stolen Land // The son of working-class Mexican immigrants flees a life of labor in fruit-packing plants to run in a Native American marathon from Canada to Guatemala.

For nearly seven decades she lived through a psychological and cultural shift more extreme than most human imaginations could conjure.
