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.

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.
