Book description: Eleven undocumented immigrants are locked inside a baking railcar by smugglers and left to die a horrific death when no one comes to release them as promised. The railcar rolls on to the farming community of Denison, Iowa, where newspaper and television reporters descend after the bodies are discovered, all seeking the story behind the deaths. Train to Nowhere--part crime story and part immigration perspective--is an intimate portrait of those connected to the 2002 railcar deaths of eleven Central Americans and Mexicans.
