Nineteen-year-old Nayeli works at a taco shop in her Mexican village and dreams about her father, who journeyed to the US to find work. Recently, it has dawned on her that he isn't the only man who has left town. In fact, there are almost no men in the village -- they've all gone north. While watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli decides to go north herself and recruit seven men -- her own Siete Magnificos -- to repopulate her hometown and protect it from the bandidos who plan on taking it over. She and a group of friends set out for the mythical land of her dreams – a small town in Illinois.

Into the Beautiful North is the story of an irresistible young woman's quest to find herself on both sides of the fence.

As new in dust wrapper and protective mylar.
