"La bestia, la tragedia de migrantes centroamericanos en M xico" (The beast, the tragedy of Central American migrants in Mexico) is a book that expands and goes in depth about what was seen in the documental "The Beast," exposing in detail the difficulties, the dangers and the feelings faced by thousands of human beings who leave their home countries in Central America. They travel through one of the most risky and violent routes in the world for undocumented immigrants as they cross through Mexico on top of "la bestia" (or the beast), as the perilous freight trains they ride to try to make it to the United States is called. Journalist, filmmaker and author, Pedro Ultreras (7 Soles, 2007) makes use of the profuse material he produced during and after the shooting of his documentary "The Beast" and transfers it to a deeper dimension, narrating the adventures, the hazards and the deeds lived by these migrants and himself -as he also rides "the beast" along migrants- go through on the dreadful journey that these daring men and women follow in pursuit of an economic prosperity that often leads them to a tragic outcome of their plans.

La bestia, la tragedia de migrantes centroamericanos en M xico is profusely enriched with photographs taken by the author.
