Book talk:

Threshold gives readers a glimpse into a frequently overlooked reality; that of first responders who work at the US-Mexico border, preventing disasters and saving lives in both countries. They rush patients to hospitals across country lines, tend to the broken bones of migrants who jump over the wall, and put out fires that know no national boundaries. Writing from her own experience as an emergency responder, Ieva Jusionyte provides a gripping examination of the politics of injury and rescue in this militarized border region.
