The Robin Hood of El Dorado chronicles the life and adventures of Joaquin Murrieta, a Hispanic outlaw who lived in California during the Gold Rush.
In rebellion against American pioneers, Joaquin Murrieta committed wholesale murder, rape, arson and more. He and his band are said to have more than 300 murders on their record.
Murrieta was finally killed by Harry Love and his Los Angeles Rangers, and his head was exhibited in San Francisco for $1 admission. This book includes a copy of the advertisement for the exhibition of Murrieta's head.
