This book was created by Gertrude Franklin Horn Atherton in 1898. It speaks of hispanic-mexican who are planning to naturalize California as their own place, and then describes in detail how the male protagonist, Roldan Castanada, attempts to deal with this matter. In the annals of California he has experienced a series of adventures memorable. Will he choose to run away from anything or to face the dilemma bravely?

格特鲁德•阿瑟顿(1857.10.30-1948.6.14)是美国著名的多产作家。她的许多小说都以她的家乡加利福尼亚为背景。她的畅销小说《黑牛》(1923)被拍成了同名电影。除了小说,她还写短篇故事、随笔,为杂志和新闻撰写有关女权主义、政治和战争的文章。她意志坚强、意识独立,但有时也会招来争议。

Gertrude Franklin Horn Atherton (October 30, 1857 – June 14, 1948) was a prominent and prolific American author. Many of her novels are set in her home state, California. Her best-seller Black Oxen (1923) was made into a silent movie of the same name. In addition to novels, she wrote short stories, essays, and articles for magazines and newspapers on such issues as feminism, politics, and war. She was strong-willed, independent-minded, and sometimes controversial.

Roldan Castanada walked excitedly up and down the verandah of his father's house, his thumbs thrust into the red silk sash that was knotted about his waist, his cambric shirt open at the throat as if pulled impatiently apart; the soft grey sombrero on the back of his curly head making a wide frame for his dark, flushed, scowling face.

There was nothing in the surroundings to indicate the cause of his disturbance. The great adobe house, its white sides and red tiles glaring in the bright December sun, would have been as silent as a tomb but for the rapid tramping of Roldan and the clank of his silver spurs on the pavement. On all sides the vast Rancho Los Palos Verdes cleft the horizon: Don Mateo Castanada was one of the wealthiest grandees in the Californias, and his sons could gallop all day without crossing the boundary line of their future possessions. The rancho was as level as mid-ocean in a calm; here and there a wood or river broke the sweep; thousands of cattle grazed. Now and again a mounted vaquero, clad in small-clothes vivified with silver trimmings, dashed amongst tossing horns, shouting and warning.
