Description: Quien no conoce al Zorro, el astuto y travieso enmascarado? Lo que no sabiamos -- de como surgio el heroe -- se resuelve en estas paginas, que nos revelan el misterio de su doble personalidad. Aqui reencontramos a su amigo Bernardo, su corcel, Tornado, su prodigioso latigo, la Z con que firma sus hazanas y mucho mas. Nacido en 1795 en la California hispana, Diego de la Vega esta atrapado entre dos mundos. Su padre es un heroico militar convertido en un prospero hacendado, su madre es una valiente guerrera indigena y su abuela materna es la sabia chaman de su tribu. Del primero, Diego aprende las virtudes de un hidalgo, desde esgrima hasta el arte de hacerse obedecer, mientras su madre y su abuela lo inician en las tradiciones indigenas y el conocimiento de la naturaleza y la magia. Junto a su inseparable amigo Bernardo, vive aventuras en la ninez y se da cuenta de las injusticias que soportan los indios a mano de los colonos europeos. Diego se hace hombre en Barcelona, donde su padre lo manda a estudiar justamente cuando Espana, ocupada por las tropas de Napoleon, soporta una cruenta guerra. Le toca de todo, desde duelos a muerte hasta enamorarse a primera vista, enrolarse en una sociedad secreta, huir con una tribu de gitanos, ser secuestrado por piratas y, sobre todo, enfrentarse al hombre que habra de ser su peor enemigo. Por ultimo regresa a California a reclamar la hacienda donde nacio e impartir justicia, luchando por los indefensos. Asi, entre el Viejo y el Nuevo Mundo se forma el caracter del mas legendario y romantico de los heroes.

Isabel Allende was born in 1942 in Lima, Peru, the daughter of a Chilean diplomat. When her parents separated, young Isabel moved with her mother to Chile, where she spent the rest of her childhood. She married at the age of 19 and had two children, Paula and Nicolas. Her uncle was Salvador Allende, the president of Chile. When he was overthrown in the coup of 1973, she fled Chile, moving to Caracas, Venezuela. While living in Venezuela, Allende began writing her novels, many of them exploring the close family bonds between women. Her first novel, The House of the Spirits, has been translated into 27 languages, and was later made into a film. She then wrote Of Love and Shadows, Eva Luna, and The Stories of Eva Luna, all set in Latin America. The Infinite Plan was her first novel to take place in the United States. In Paula, Allende wrote her memoirs in connection with her daughter's illness and death. She delved into the erotic connections between food and love in Aphrodite: A Memoir of the Senses. In addition to writing books, Allende has worked as a TV interviewer, magazine writer, school administrator, and a secretary at a U.N. office in Chile. She received the 1996 Harold Washington Literacy Award. She lives in California. Her title Maya's Notebook made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2013.
