About The Road to Mexico
Lawrence Taylor and Maeve Hickey's The Road to Mexico (University of Arizona Press, 1997) offers a delicious narrative and evocative photos on the blue highways stretching from Tucson, Arizona to Magdalena de Kino, Sonora.
"The Road to Mexico is what might result if Studs Terkel tried his hand at travel writing...makes you reconsider your assumptions about what still drives travelers, timid or brave, to venture far from home."
- Francine Prose, The New York Times, December 7, 1997 (Holiday Books 1997, Travel section)
"Taylor and photographer Hickey ably romanticize this arid yet culturally rich landscape. More than a travelog, their work touches on history and religion as well as current immigration concerns."
- Library Journal
"A portrait of a vital, sun- scorched area, dense with history, emerges with great precision."
- Kirkus Reviews
