The Robin Hood of El Dorado : the saga of Joaquin Murrieta, famous outlaw of California's age of gold by Walter Noble Burns( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1932 and never reprinted since, this historical drama re-creates the life and adventures of Joaquin Murrieta, a Hispanic social rebel in California during the tumultuous Gold Rush. Published during the Great Depression at a time of mass deportations of Hispanos to Mexico, this sympathetic portrait of Murrieta and Mexican Americans was unique for its time in voicing social protest. The author romanticizes the pastoral society of Mexican California and introduces the protagonist as a quiet, honest, and unpretentious resident of Saw Mill Flat, California. But the rape and murder of his wife, Rosita, by racist Anglo miners unleashes his vengeful rage. Strapping on his pistols, Murrieta tracks and kills Rosita's murderers and defends Hispanos against violence and dispossession by rampaging gold rush miners. Richard Griswold del Castillo discusses the significance of Murrieta to twentieth-century Mexican Americans and Chicanos, and of Burns's History to contemporary understanding of the mysterious social bandit."--BOOK JACKET
Tombstone; an Iliad of the Southwest by Walter Noble Burns( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in 1849, Earp grew up on the Missouri-Kansas frontier and first came to notice as a no-nonsense town marshal in rip-roaring Dodge City, Kansas. Moving to wide-open Tombstone, Arizona, in 1879, he became a businessman and deputy United States marshal and was soon joined by four brothers. In Burns's narrative, the Earp clan represents law and order in the lawless chaotic Old West. These antagonistic forces explode in the bloody and legendary gunfight at the OK Corral between the Earps and the Clanton-McLowery gang. The Earps prevailed, but the subsequent shootings of two Earp brothers drove the calm, courageous, and somewhat emotionless Wyatt to take the law into his own hands
