From the pilgrimage of body and soul in Gonzalo de Berceo's Milagros de Nuestra Señora and the nautical textual voyage in Columbus' Diario de a Bordo, representations of the migrant in modern Iberian and Latin American literatures, trope of the "journey" has been essential in shaping literary discourse from the Middle Ages to the present. The word "journey" is understood here as a comprehensive that can encompass all kinds of travel – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual – one place to another, near or far, whether it be by land, sea, air, or the imagination regardless of motives, means, and goals.

Edited by Gloria McMillan

Although this essay collection is keyed to the fact that Ray Bradbury spent a formative teen year in Tucson, Arizona, that impressed his young mind, largely shaping his metaphorical Mars, we are interested in broader issues and perspectves about Ray Bradbury as a bridge-builder and boundary-crosser.

He took up issues only now gaining something like a full airing. "I See You Never,"
(_The New Yorker_, Nov. 8, 1947) is perhaps the first story in an American literary magazine taking up the plight of undocumented Mexican workers in the US.
