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.

Language Notes:

Text: Spanish

From Library Journal:

It's astonishing that we had to wait two years for the Spanish edition of Angela's AshesAand over 30 years for the translation of Tom s's Down These Mean Streets, a classic that first introduced the barrio to wider audiences. But at least they're here. It's also a treat to have this memoir from Jim?nez, Cuban born and now a leading literary scholar living in the United States.
