When he was 14 years old, Alfredo Alva crossed the border with his father from Mexico into Texas. His journey is told in the children’s book “La Frontera: El Viaje con Papá, My Journey with Papa” by first-time author and Kerrville resident Deborah Mills. Alva is now a construction worker living in Kerrville.

The story has been slightly altered to make the character of Alfredito younger, about 8 years old, to better identify with young readers.
