"Alan Fluckey must be commended for being the translator to finally translate The Bandits from Rio Frio to the English. Manuel Payno's epic work can finally find a permanent home in the collection of popular literary classics in English, paralleling its place in Spanish language literature. This down-to-earth picture of 19th century Mexican life and politics is priceless."-- River Walk Journal
