Synopsis

Twenty-second century Cholos living on Cali-Texas Reservations have few options. One of them is signing up as “Moon Tecos” (technicians disposing of Earth's waste on Lunar sites). After discovering that their Teco contracts are one-way tickets, the LUNAR BRACEROS are forced to take matters into their own hands. "It's like nothing I've ever read. LUNAR BRACEROS delivers. It's a powerful social narrative that creates an alternative imaginative reality and explores the dynamics of space travel in relation to the Americas"—Angie Chabram, UC Davis. "I've been waiting for this kind of novel for most of my life, a work of science fiction from below, focused on people of color, that takes on big ideas about history, politics, capitalism, philosophy, and science"—Curtis Marez, UC San Diego. Illustrations by Mario A. Chacon.
