They frame the story (included in its entirety) with chapters that discuss how it encapsulates notions that Taylor learned from the Chicano movement, the farmworkers union, his community, his father, his mother and his religion.

Taggart gives the ethnography a solid theoretical underpinning by discussing how the story and Taylors account of how he created it represent an act of resistance to the class system that Taylor perceives as destroying his native culture.
