After the bloody Tomochic rebellion, Teresita Urrea, beloved healer
and 'Saint of Cabora,' flees with her father to Arizona. But their
plans are derailed when she once again is claimed as the spiritual
leader of the Mexican Revolution. Besieged by pilgrims and pursued
by assassins, Teresita embarks on a journey through
turn-of-the-century industrial America-New York, San Francisco, St.
Louis. She meets immigrants and tycoons, European royalty and Cuban
poets, all waking to the new American century. And as she decides
what her own role in this modern future will be, she must ask
herself: can a saint fall in love? At turns heartbreaking,
uplifting, and riotously funny, QUEEN OF AMERICA reconfirms Luis
Alberto Urrea's status as a writer of the first rank.
