Edgewalkers are people who belong to two or more ethnic, cultural, or spiritual worlds. They reject both the idea of "melting pot" conformity and multiculturalism with its tendency to emphasize differences. Edgewalkers instead embrace their cultural complexity while still engaging in mainstream society. Through in-depth interviews, Krebs shares Edgewalkers' struggles and triumphs as they forge the uncharted territory of the new global frontier.
