About This Book
It is California in the early 1800s.
A corrupt governor and his army abuse the helpless and cheat the poor. The hard-drinking Sergeant Gonzales will stop at nothing to earn a reward. And the evil Captain Ramón will stop at nothing to get revenge. Meanwhile, the beautiful Señorita Lolita Pulido must choose between the man she loves and a man who can restore her family's reputation.
Out of the dark night comes the bold Señor Zorro. This mysterious, masked rider uses his sword and his whip to stand up to the forces of evil that stalk the countryside.
