The first novel to feature a Mexican American hero: an adventure tale about Mexicans rising up against U.S. rule in California, based on the real-life bandit who inspired the creation of Zorro, the Lone Ranger, and Batman With a new foreword by Diana Gabaldon, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series An action-packed blend of folk tale, romance, epic, and myth, The Life and Adventures of Joaquín Murieta tells the story of the Gold Rush-era Mexican immigrant Joaquín Murieta, whose efforts to find fortune and happiness are thwarted by white settlers who murder his family and drive him off his land. In retaliation, Murieta organizes a band of more than 2,000 outlaws--including the sadistic "Three-Fingered Jack"--who take revenge by murdering, stealing horses, and robbing miners, all with the ultimate goal of reconquering California. The first novel written by a Native American and the first novel published in California, The Life and Adventures of Joaquín Murieta speaks to the ways in which ethical questions of national security and racialized police violence have long been a part of U.S. history. This edition features excerpts from popular rewritings of the novel, including Johnston McCulley's first novel about Zorro, The Curse of Capistrano (also known as The Mark of Zorro).… (mais)

I picked this up because it was mentioned in a book I just finished reading, "There There" by Tommy Orange. In that book, this one was mentioned as "The first novel by a Native person, and the first novel written in California...". I felt duty bound to pick this up!

This book takes place in the 1850's, in California. Joaquin gets whipped for stealing a horse he didn't steal, and the same mob that did that, killed his half brother. Well, he decides then and there to get revenge on that mob, and on all white Americans, or "Yankees", and forms a band of outlaws, or banditti, to do so! Most colorful of those fellows, besides Murieta, is Three Fingered Jack, but all the banditti are ruthless robbers and killers.

This book is ok, in that it has historical relevance and has some decent, if bloody, action. What I didn't like is that it is all one big long piece, no chapter breaks or anything. It sort of reads like a person talking too fast! Even if they just divided the story up at date/season changes, it would have read better, for me. But if you like westerns, and robbers, you'll probably like this! ( )

Violent, sensationalistic, and with a fascinating afterlife in popular fiction and film, Ridge's little novel about the "Robin Hood of El Dorado" packs a punch. This University of Oklahoma Press edition continues to be the gold standard, too, with its wonderful introduction by Joseph Henry Jackson. Highly recommended to anyone who likes a good dime novel or adventure story. ( )

I sit down to write somewhat concerning the life and character of Joaquin Murieta, a man as remarkable in the annals of crime as any of the renowned robbers of the Old World or New World, who have preceded him; and I do this, not for the purpose of ministering to any depraved taste for the dark and horrible in human action, but rather to contribute my mite to those materials out of which the early history of California shall one day be composed.
