¿Quién no conoce al Zorro, el astuto y travieso enmascarado? Lo que no sabíamos -- de cómo surgió el héroe -- se resuelve en estas páginas, que nos revelan el misterio de su doble personalidad. Aquí reencontramos a su amigo Bernardo, su corcel, Tornado, su prodigioso látigo, la Z con que firma sus hazañas y mucho más.

Nacido en 1795 en la California hispana, Diego de la Vega está atrapado entre dos mundos. Su padre es un heroico militar convertido en un próspero hacendado, su madre es una valiente guerrera indígena y su abuela materna es la sabia chamán de su tribu. Del primero, Diego aprende las virtudes de un hidalgo, desde esgrima hasta el arte de hacerse obedecer, mientras su madre y su abuela lo inician en las tradiciones indígenas y el conocimiento de la naturaleza y la magia. Junto a su inseparable amigo Bernardo, vive aventuras en la niñez y se da cuenta de las injusticias que soportan los indios a mano de los colonos europeos.

Diego se hace hombre en Barcelona, donde su padre lo manda a estudiar justamente cuando España, ocupada por las tropas de Napoleón, soporta una cruenta guerra. Le toca de todo, desde duelos a muerte hasta enamorarse a primera vista, enrolarse en una sociedad secreta, huir con una tribu de gitanos, ser secuestrado por piratas y, sobre todo, enfrentarse al hombre que habrá de ser su peor enemigo. Por último regresa a California a reclamar la hacienda donde nació e impartir justicia, luchando por los indefensos. Así, entre el Viejo y el Nuevo Mundo se forma el carácter del más legendario y romántico de los héroes.

Review:

“This is a full-blooded retelling of the old masked-man legend, and it crackles with action.” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

“A tale of adventure, history and romance, just in time for long reads on summer afternoons.” (Austin American-Statesman)

“Lively and fascinating.” (Chicago Tribune)

“Allende is a beguiling storyteller, and Zorro provides a rich palate for her customary embellishments.” (Library Journal)

“Equal parts adventure, historical novel and family saga, Zorro is a moving portrait of a hero who is heartbreakingly human.” (People)

“One of those rare and perfect matches of subject and author... Sinfully entertaining ... Serious fiction.” (Houston Chronicle)

“Allende’s discreetly subversive talent really shows . . . You turn the pages, cheering on the masked man.” (Los Angeles Times)

“Zorro is great fun . . . A thrilling journey into a world in which cultures clash as often as swords.” (Miami Herald)

“Wonderfully crafted . . . Allende gives Zorro the feel of a folk or fairy tale.” (USA Today)
