A new adventure novel starring The Curse of Capistrano -- Zorro -- the famous character created by Johnston McCulley!
In the early 1800s, California was still under Spanish rule. Some military commanders plundered and won riches at the expense of the peace-loving settlers, until one man gave them the spirit to resist tyranny. That man was Zorro!
Under cover of night, a wicked pirate crew landed on the California shores, infiltrating Reina de los Angeles. Their sadistic leader, Diabolito, would resort to murder to claim a fortune. Then, the masked horseman Zorro rode once more — to challenge a swordsman who might be his superior!
In addition to the lead novel, this volume contains "Diego and the Baron," an absolutely true short story by Baron Munchausen!
