Review:

The Bandit Joaquin is a tale of retaliation, determination and success. Joaquin Murieta was a scrawny teenager barely strong enough to dig a grave for his family when he was orphaned and forced to fend for himself in the Sierra Nevada mountain range in central California. This was a time and place where everyone with his skin color was considered a "no-good Mexican" who could be unfairly taxed, run off their land, and exterminated without fear of punishment. Don Gwaltney has composed a moving journey through the halcyon days of the California Gold Rush in a wild and woolly American West. The Bandit Joaquin is actually based on impeccable research resulting in an accurate background to this high-adventure tale. Every detail is authentic and appropriate, enhancing the reader's enjoyment. The Bandit Joaquin is the stuff of which legends (and Hollywood movies) are made. -- Midwest Book Review
