How could a boy no more than sixteen stand there calmly and face death? Manuel, the child of fire, is a boy whose whole world prompts him to take risks, time and time again. He lives just north of the Mexican border, the leader of a teenage Chicano gang that vies with another gang for power. The book is filled with friendly competitions and bitter struggles. It is filled with robust, hearty living and with some dying. As the rival gangs go their different ways, Parole Officer Delaney watches and helps where he can.
