Although her Chicano family labors in the tomato fields and the packing house of the great Vanducci empire, Selena dreams of marrying into the landed gentry. When the fantasy shatters in her face, Selena goes on to become a spellbinding labor organizer, steeped in the mythology of her ancestors and determined to bring the parvenu landowners--especially the Vanduccis--to their knees.Jay Jay Vanducci: Heir to the wealth and power amassed by his mean-spirited grandfather, Jay Jay struggles--out of his impossible love for Selena--against the claims of caste and clan. His ultimate decision and the brutal scheming of his father ignite a chain of violent acts that explode into an all-out class war.Delano Range: Half-breed, ex-convict, born survivor, and foster brother of Jay Jay, Dels life is a series of confused loyalties and reluctant treacheries, further complicated by his obsession with Selena and by the knowledge that the Vanducci land was initially settled by his own great-grand-father.
