Enrique's Journey | A six-part Times series
A Central American youth rides a freight train through Mexico toward the United States. Each year, thousands of children cling to the tops and sides of trains as they journey north in search of a parent. Some say they need to find out whether their mothers still love them. (Don Bartletti / Los Angeles Times)

This six-part series from 2002 chronicles the journey of Enrique, who traveled alone from Honduras as a teenager in search of his mother in the United States.

Sonia Nazario, a former Times staff writer who reported and wrote the series, was awarded the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing. Times photographer Don Bartletti was awarded the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography.
