    Before his mysterious disappearance and probable death in 1971, Oscar Zeta Acosta was famous as a Robin Hood Chicano lawyer and notorious as the real-life model for Hunter S.

In this exhilarating sequel to The Autobiography of a Brown Buffalo, Acosta takes readers behind the front lines of the militant Chicano movement of the late sixties and early seventies, a movement he served both in the courtroom and on the barricades; the battles fought with bombs as well as writs. What emerges is both an important political document & moving personal saga.
