|Tiburcio Vasquez is, next to Joaquin Murrieta, America''s most infamous Hispanic bandit. After he was hanged as a murderer in 1875, the "Chicago Tribune" called him "the most noted desperado of modern times." Yet questions about him still linger. Why did he become a bandido? Why did so many Hispanics protect him and his band? Was he a common thief and heartless killer who got what he deserved, or was he a Mexican American Robin Hood who suffered at the hands of a racist government? In this engrossing biography, John Boessenecker provides definitive answers.|
