Summary (From the publisher):

"In April of 1980 the railroad reached la villa de Alburquerque in New Mexico. Legend says the Anglo stationmaster couldn't pronounce the first 'r' in 'Albur', so he dropped it as he painted the station sign for the city..."

Nobody knows the real "Alburquerque" like young boxer, Abran Gonzalez. A homeboy from the barrio, he feels his world shatter the night he is summoned to the deathbed of his biological mother, a woman he has never known. It is then that he learns that he is the son of a wealthy Anglo woman and an unknown Mexican man -- a father whose identity he feels compelled to find. This passionate quest will lead him into Alburquerque's highest -- and whitest -- circles. Confronting greedy businessmen, driven politicians, and bitter bigots, Abran will battle for the city's future, gain insight into its vanishing past...and discover his own soul.
