Both heroic and tragic, this novel captures the spirit, energy, and imagination of the 1960s' Chicano movement--a massive and intense struggle across a broad spectrum of political and cultural issues--through the passionate story of the King of the Chicanos, Ramon Hidalgo. From his very humble beginnings through the tumultuous decades of being a migrant farm worker, door-to-door salesman, prison inmate, political hack, and radical activist, the novel relates Hidalgo's personal failures and self-destructive personality amid the political turmoil of the times. With a gradual acceptance of his destiny as a leader and hero of the people, this impassioned novel relates the maturation of one man while encapsulating the fever of the Chicano movement.

A timely new edition of a pioneering work in Latino literature, National Book Award nominee Gary Soto's first collection (originally published in 1977) draws on California's fertile San Joaquin Valley, the people, the place, and the hard agricultural work done there by immigrants. In these poems, joy and anger, violence and hope are placed in both the metaphorical and very real circumstances of the Valley. Rooted in personal experiences-of the poet as a young man, his friends, family, and neighbors-the poems are spare but expansive, with Soto's voice as important as ever. This welcome new edition has been expanded with a crucial selection of complementary poems (some previously unpublished) and a new introduction by the author.

Born in Tijuana to a Mexican father and an Anglo mother from Staten Island, Urrea moved to San Diego when he was three. His childhood was a mix of opposites, a clash of cultures and languages. In prose that seethes with energy and crackles with dark humor, Urrea tells a story that is both troubling and wildly entertaining. Urrea endured violence and fear in the barrio of his youth. But the true battlefield was inside his home, where his parents waged daily war over their son's ethnicity. He suffered disease and abuse, and he learned brutal lessons about machismo. But there were gentler moments as well: a simple interlude with his father, sitting on the back of a bakery truck, or witnessing the ultimate gesture of tenderness between the godparents who taught him the magical power of love. His story is unique, but it is not unlike thousands of other stories being played out across the United States, stories of Americans who have waged war - both in the political arena and in their own homes - to claim their own personal and cultural identities. It is a story of what it means to belong to a nation that is sometimes painfully multicultural, where even the language both separates and unites us.

Author Jimmy Santiago Baca was raised in an orphanage and took to the streets at age eleven, after which this amazing young Chicano taught himself to read and write. His statement, "I think that the work I do is done in the dark", encompasses many meanings central to his preoccupation with the night. In this book Baca passionately explores the troubled years of his youth, from which he emerged with heightened awareness of his ethnic identity as a Chicano, his role as a voice for the misunderstood tribal life of the barrio, and his redemptive vocation as a poet. His American Book Award for poetry in 1988 and his National Endowment for the Arts Hispanic Heritage Award in 1989 show the esteem in which his work is held.
