But it is never much more than a challenge as the gallant caballero laughs in the face of danger - nothing can faze him. Villainous villains, heroic heroes, and damsels in distress are all brought to life in full sonic splendor.

Originally serialized, this exciting adventure story achieved immortal fame thanks to the Douglas Fairbanks film of the same name - a cinematic triumph that inspired author Johnston McCulley to dedicate the book release to Fairbanks. It has since seen numerous film and other adaptations, including Blackstone Audio’s full-cast audio drama produced by the renowned Yuri Rasovsky and featuring the voice talents of Val Kilmer. 1820s California, in a bygone era of sprawling haciendas and haughty caballeros, suffers beneath the whip of oppression. Missions are pillaged, native peasants are abused, and innocent men and women are persecuted by the corrupt governor and his army. But a champion of freedom rides the highways. His identity hidden behind a mask, the laughing outlaw Zorro defies the tyrant’s might. A deadly marksman and a demon swordsman, his flashing blade strikes down those who exploit the poor and oppressed. First published in 1919, The Mark of Zorro remains a paradigm of swashbuckling adventure and a popular novel to this day. Johnston McCulley (1883–1958), a one-time police reporter, was the author of hundreds of stories, fifty novels, plus numerous screenplays for film and television. He was also the creator of the character Zorro. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Armando Durán. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/004762/bk_blak_004762_sample.mp3.

But to his surprise, when Diego arrives, he finds his son uninterested the community´s problems and unwilling to take up arms. However, Diego´s pretense of pacifism is just a ploy to protect his quick-tempered firebrand of a father from the certain destructive retribution challenging the Alcalde´s rule would bring.

By day he is a man of books - interested only in painting, poetry, music, and science. But at night, Diego rides as the masked hero Zorro fighting cruelty and injustice. For Zorro to end this reign of terror, he must outwit the scheming Montero and avoid being captured by Sergeant Garcia, Corporal Reyes, and the rest of the pueblo´s Lancers.Zorro: The Legend Begins is a fun action-packed swashbuckling adventure dramatized from an original story and based on characters and situations created by Johnston McCulley.
