About this Item

SIGNED hardcover - Book club edition. The epic story of three generations of the Villasenor family - of their spiritual and cultural roots in Mexico, of their immigration to California and of their struggles and eventual success in this country. Although this reads like a novel, in his introduction, Villasenor says that it is not fiction - that it is based on hundreds of hours of taping his father, on travelling to Mexico, and on years of research: 'The people in this story are real. The places are true. And the incidents did really happen.' SIGNED on the title page. Map, genealogical charts, photographs. 551 pp. Fine in fine dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 39054

About this title

Synopsis:

In Rain of Gold, Victor Villasenor weaves the parallel stories of two families and two countries...bringing us the timeless romance between the volatile bootlegger who would become his father and the beautiful Lupe, his mother–men and women in whose lives the real and the fantastical exist side by side...and in whose hearts the spirit to survive is fueled by a family’s unconditional love.

From the Back Cover:

"A grand and vivid history... the characters are keenly drawn... often I felt like a family member watching from a corner stool." -- The New York Times Book Review

In 1998 we relocated our main business from Sacramento to the Sierra foothills of Amador County, about 35 miles east of downtown Sacramento and between Ione & Sutter Creek.
