Description
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 Joaquin Murieta tells the story of the Gold Rush-era bandit Joaquin 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 gold and horses, and robbing banks, all with the ultimate goal of reconquering California.Written by a half-Cherokee named John Rollin Ridge, or Yellow Bird, and inspired by the true story of an American folk hero, The Life and Adventures of Joaquin Murieta is the first Native American novel, the first novel published in California, and the first to feature a Mexican American hero. The story of the infamous bandit-which became one of California's founding myths and has lived on in countless stories, poems, plays, and films-speaks to the ways in which questions of race, ethics, national security, and racialized police violence have been a part of our country's history since its founding.
