In this corner of Dixie that each day becomes a little more like Mexico, Homero Luna has written his own Horatio Alger story. His tale begins in 1993, when the bus drops him off in town. He's just another 20-year-old baby-faced Latino immigrant, high on hopes but low on cash. His first day in Dalton, he lands a job in a poultry plant. They teach him how to gut a chicken in less than 20 seconds. When someone at the plant steals his only pair of shoes, he spends days wearing his rubber work boots.
