The story of Joaquin Murrieta is one of cold-blooded murder, wanton destruction, and horror never matched by any other American desperado before or since. Yet this saga is not a factual account of the man because the incredible myth that has come down about him makes a sincere presentation of the facts impossible. However, Joaquin was everything claimed and more; he was as brilliant as he was brutal, as generous as he was murderous, and as romantic as he was deadly.
