Description
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, Ram#65533;n 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.
