Alfredo Corchado: Midnight in Mexico
A family tragedy sends the Corchados from Mexico to California's Central Valley, searching for greener pastures. Upon arrival, that's hardly what they find. But some years later, a deal involving a 1978 Camaro sets the oldest son on a path to unlikely success. Now he's risking his life every day to get the story out.
Alfredo Corchado is the author of the book Midnight in Mexico.
