Pancho Villa: Outlaw Hero

In the early years of the 20th century, the legend of Robin Hood was alive and well. Pancho Villa— revolutionary, outlaw and legend—embodied the spirit of Robin Hood and stole from the rich in the name of the poor. But was Pancho Villa a benevolent guardian of the poor, or a ruthless murderer whose brutal deeds negated any good intentions he might have had? The answer lies somewhere in between. Shrouded in myth and folklore, Pancho Villa's life is legendary, making it difficult to know what is true and what is romantic lore. Pancho Villa: Outlaw Hero unravels the mystery of Pancho Villa's legend to discover who he really was, and whether he was one of the greatest heroes or greatest murderers of the 20th century.
Pancho Villa: Outlaw Hero would be useful for classes on Mexican History, American History, World History, Military History, Hispanic Culture and Ethics. It is appropriate for middle school and high school.
