Vida y aventuras del más célebre bandido sonorense, Joaquín Murrieta: sus grandes proezas en California

Front Cover
Arte Público Press, 1999 - Biography & Autobiography - 242 pages
Here is the dime-novelesque biography of the most infamous bandit in the history of the West, for decades a source of fear and legend in the newly founded state of California. To both Mexicans and Indians, Murrieta became a symbol of resistance to the displacement and oppression visited on them in the wake of the Mexican-American War (1846-1848). In his introduction, literary critic Luis Leal has researched and written the first definitive history of the Murrieta legend in its various incarnations.
