In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father—a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man—has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey—first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother’s family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father’s life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.

Stories filled with wonder and the haunting beauty of his culture have helped make Rudolfo Anaya the father of Chicano literature in English, and his tales fairly shimmer with the lyric richness of his prose. Acclaimed in both Spanish and English, Anaya is perhaps best loved for his classic bestseller ... Antonio Marez is six years old when Ultima comes to stay with his family in New Mexico. She is a curandera, one who cures with herbs and magic. Under her wise wing, Tony will test the bonds that tie him to his people, and discover himself in the pagan past, in his father's wisdom, and in his mother's Catholicism. And at each life turn there is Ultima, who delivered Tony into the world-and will nurture the birth of his soul. (68,000 words)

His first book "Los Primeros Aos" (ISBN 978-9968-47-133-6), written in Spanish, covers his early childhood and adolescence, growing up in the 1950s and 1960s in Venezuela and Costa Rica, and where he forms his dreams of space exploration.

With many triumphs and defeats along the way, his American journey is a story of personal struggle and perseverance that unfolds against the backdrop of the tumultuous 1970s and takes him on an extraordinary decade of adventure and discovery to the pinnacle of scientific achievement and his selection to NASA's Astronaut Corps.
