And throughout all of this Taylor brings it back to the bikes. He lovingly portrays everything from BMX to six-speed mountain bikes, with a vast sense of history and context for their sociopolitical implications. Everything from feminism to war is picked through with a fine-toothed comb. This does lead to tangents that detract, however, from the main story, and it can be a bit distracting. The characters are colorful and the settings are diverse, but Taylor does fail to commit to any political statement.
Perhaps this is for the best, especially considering the U.
What he does succeed at is bringing it home and making every reader feel affected by the plight of human trafficking. A professor once told Bart Bishop that all literature is about "sex, death and religion," tainting his mind forever.

The Coyote's Bicycle
Brand new Book. It wasn't surprising when the first abandoned bicycles were found along the dirt roads and farmland just across the border from Tijuana, but before long they were arriving in droves. The bikes went from curiosity, to nuisance, to phenomenon.
But until they caught the eye of journalist Kimball Taylor, only a small cadre of human smugglers--coyotes--and migrants could say how or why they'd gotten there. And only through Taylor's obsession did another curious migratory pattern emerge: the bicycles' movement through the black market, Hollywood, the prison system, and the military-industrial complex. This is the story of 7, bikes that made an incredible journey and one young man from Oaxaca who arrived at the border with nothing, built a small empire, and then vanished.
Taylor follows the trail of the border bikes through some of society's most powerful institutions, and, with the help of an unlikely source, he reconstructs the rise of one of Tijuana's most innovative coyotes.
