One day in March 1963 in the city of Torreon, State of Coahuila, Mexico, a group of 492 heads of families said goodbye to their wives, children, relatives, and friends, and boarded a train to begin a long journey south and east to a new and, they desperately hoped, better life, with land of their own to work and to love. It would be almost a full year before the families would be reunited in a new and different environment.
