'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.

NEW YORK — Add another book for possible holiday gifts: Oprah Winfrey's latest 2.0 selection.

Winfrey announced on Wednesday that she has chosen Ayana Mathis' debut novel, “The Twelve Tribes of Hattie,” for her book club. Publisher Alfred A. Knopf moved up publication from early next year to this week, and an author interview will be aired on Feb. 3 on the “Super Soul Sunday” program on Winfrey's OWN network.

“Twelve Tribes” is the story of a teenager's journey from Mississippi to Philadelphia in the 1920s and the large family she ends up raising.

“I can't remember when I read anything that moved me in quite this way, besides the work of Toni Morrison,” Winfrey said.

Winfrey revived her club, now called Oprah's Book Club 2.0, this year with Cheryl Strayed's memoir “Wild.” Published by Knopf, “Wild” has sold about 500,000 copies, most of that after Winfrey's announcement.
