A romantic tale of Mexico at the dawn of Independence, an adventure, a romance, a political satire, a sociological study, a whodunit, a telenovela, and more...

Manuel Payno's classic Mexican novel develops a romantic history of impossible love between the Countess Mariana del Sauz and Lieutenant Colonel Juan Robreño. An illegitimate son results from a brief union of these lovers, and this star-crossed child is kidnapped and abandoned by Aztec witches. Wrongly accused of theft and murder, he must pursue the truth of his birth through staggering misfortunes. Along the way he experiences war, famine, plague, and association with Evaristo, a bandit of national and even international fame who nearly brings a government to its knees.

These and a host of other memorable characters are swept up in a web of organized crime spun by the fabulous Relumbrón, presidential assistant, wealthy aristocrat, church stalwart, family man, and former associate of the great Santa Ana...

Review:

Think of Manuel Payno as the Margaret Mitchell of Mexico and then settle back for a multilayered novel reflecting both the rich culture and history of 19th century Mexico. Fluckey's excellent translation is fluid and sassy.

--The Tucson Citizen

Manuel Payno's Los Bandidos de Río Frío is the only Mexican novel of the nineteenth-century to approach an adequate and persuasive portrayal of the tragic-comedy of national politics and life in the decades after the Reformation.

--D.A. Brading author of The First America: The Spanish Monarchy, Creole Patriots and the Liberal State 1492-1866 (Cambridge University Press)

...a sweeping epic vision of a country... Payno's novel is an immense fresco of [Mexico], depicting members of all social classes... By presenting a wide spectrum of characters, Payno covers every aspect of popular life in Mexico... while sketching the political, rural, provincial, urban, military, religious, and economic problems of the country during times of anarchy.

--José Tomás de Cuéllar, author of The Magic Lantern: Having a Ball and Christmas Eve (Library of Latin America)
