ABSTRACT
The author relates the difficulties encountered in gathering data for the article series "The Pineros: Men of the Pines." The author and his co-worker photojournalist Hector Amezcua have had several challenges in documenting the working and living conditions of illegal migrant forestry workers from Mexico in the U.S. They found it difficult to look for and conduct interviews with the workers who, mostly, would never reveal their names and take their pictures for fear of losing their jobs and being deported. Language barrier also pose another challenge since many migrants only speak Spanish. At times, the author and Amezcua went home empty-handed and frustrated. But their persistence paid off. They met several workers who told stories of injuries and abuses they experienced.
