Lauded as the father of Chicano storytelling in English, Rudolfo Anaya's work is famed for its cultural resonance and unforgettable characters. Here is one of his richest achievements -- a spellbinding tale of history, place, and destiny ...Nobody knows the real "Alburquerque" like young boxer Abran Gonzalez. A homeboy from the barrio, his world shatters the night he is summoned to the deathbed of his biological mother -- a woman he has never known. He learns he is the son of a wealthy Anglo woman and a father whose identity Abran feels compelled to uncover. Thus begins a passionate quest that will lead him to Alburquerque's highest, and whitest, circles. Confronting greedy businessmen, politicians, and bigots, Abran will battle for the city's future, gain insight into its vanishing past ... and discover his own soul.
