About this book
Between the New World and the Old, the persona of Zorro is formed, a great hero is born, and the legend begins. After many adventures — duels at dawn, fierce battles with pirates at sea, and impossible rescues — Diego de la Vega, a.k.a. Zorro, returns to America to reclaim the hacienda on which he was raised and to seek justice for all who cannot fight for it themselves.
Review by Hayling Island Library Reading Group:
12 members attended – 8 enjoyed the books as a ‘good read’ in spite of the ‘Boys Own’ aspect. The historical and geographical details were praised together with some descriptions – the Gypsies and the journey across Spain for examples. However, several members queried the quality of the translation from Spanish to English and found instances of most inappropriate phrasing.
