SOLDIERS AND KINGS Survival and Hope in the World of Human Smuggling

by | Read by Jason De León

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Jason De León is a strong narrator of his own work, an eye-opening examination of human smugglers. Many of those he writes about are driven by poverty to join this dangerous trade in Honduras and Mexico. Both they and their customers try to avoid multiple risks, including arrest and violence, on their treks. De León, who spent time with his subjects over almost seven years, has just a touch of huskiness in his voice. His performance carries empathy for the people he is writing about, but he is not overly sentimental. He does an excellent job with dialogue, injecting humanity and personality into those whom many Americans see simply as criminals. This audiobook, with De León at the helm, is riveting.
