Po-on by F. Sionil Jose

Product Description
With the publication of this novel, F. Sionil José completes his major work -- the Rosales saga. PO-ON starts it all. Set in Ilokos in the 1880's, it records the fight of a tenant family from its village to the plains of eastern Pangasinan. But more than a story of escape from Spanish tyranny, it is also one man's tortured search for true faith and the larger meaning of his own existence, a search which propels him across the wilderness to the plain, then back, to the hostile roof of the Ilokos in the Cordilleras. Here then is the beginning of an epic story which courses through four other novels -- TREE, MY BROTHER MY EXECUTIONER, THE PRETENDERS and culminates with MASS which the scholar-critic, Isagani R. Cruz, considers as "one of the greatest Filipino novels of all time." Independent of each other, these five novels sweep through Philippine history, encompassing four generations -- an achievement which the poet-critic Ricaredo Demetillo recognizes as "the first great Filipino novels written in English -- the most impressive legacy of any writer to the Philippine culture.
