en Limba Engleză Paperback – September 2005
The award-winning and bestselling classic memoir about a young Chicano gang member surviving the dangerous streets of East Los Angeles, now featuring a new introduction by the author.
Winner of the Carl Sandburg Literary Award, hailed as a "New York Times" notable book, and read by hundreds of thousands, "Always Running" is the searing true story of one man s life in a Chicano gang and his heroic struggle to free himself from its grip.
By age twelve, Luis Rodriguez was a veteran of East Los Angeles gang warfare. Lured by a seemingly invincible gang culture, he witnessed countless shootings, beatings, and arrests and then watched with increasing fear as gang life claimed friends and family members. Before long, Rodriguez saw a way out of the barrio through education and the power of words and successfully broke free from years of violence and desperation.
Achieving success as an award-winning poet, he was sure the streets would haunt him no more until his young son joined a gang. Rodriguez fought for his child by telling his own story in "Always Running, " a vivid memoir that explores the motivations of gang life and cautions against the death and destruction that inevitably claim its participants.
At times heartbreakingly sad and brutal, "Always Running" is ultimately an uplifting true story, filled with hope, insight, and a hard-earned lesson for the next generation."
