'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Amazon is offering an enticement to independent bookstores: Sell the Kindle and get a 10 percent cut of the price of the digital books that people buy for it for two years.

Amazon.com Inc. said Wednesday that the program, called “Amazon Source,” will give booksellers a discount when they purchase Kindles for resale. Retailers that don't classify themselves as booksellers get a larger discount on the Kindles but not the 10 percent cut of the books sold on the devices.
