A child of two worlds—the son of an aristocratic Spanish military man turned landowner and a Shoshone warrior woman—young Diego de la Vega cannot silently bear the brutal injustices visited upon the helpless in late-eighteenth-century California. And so a great hero is born—skilled in athleticism and dazzling swordplay, his persona formed between the Old World and the New—the legend known as Zorro.

Isabel Allende is the author of twelve works of fiction, including the New York Times bestsellers Maya’s Notebook, Island Beneath the Sea, Inés of My Soul, Daughter of Fortune, and a novel that has become a world-renowned classic, The House of the Spirits. Born in Peru and raised in Chile, she lives in California.From AudioFile:
Whether you're curious about the Zorro of television and movies--and what instilled a passion for justice in him--or you just appreciate a good tale of adventure and fighting for the underdog, this book is a good choice. Blair Brown takes on the persona of the narrator, whose identity as revealed in the epilogue will come as no surprise. She is an animated storyteller who maintains a strong and steady pace and personifies the characters effectively with subtlety and sensitivity. Her use of accents is judicious and not overstated. The storytelling skills of Allende and Brown are superbly joined in this audiobook. J.E.M.
