Dr. Charles Thompson became so inspired by the Mexican workers who helped him harvest the crops on his blueberry farm & the tales they told, that he undertook a personal journey along the entire 1969 miles of the border. Along the way, he documented his travels with his camera, catching some very evocative moments. He explores the border & the challenges it presents for both nations.
