I got it from a friend who thought of throwing it away. I just happened to be there at the right time.

Not sure if there's an English version.

^ good thing you were there, that book is like a jewel that you don't throw away too bad some people don't realize this

if it's not too much to ask, if it has an isbn # could you post it here so I can buy the same exact book based on the isbn #?

Meh.. those books all have recurring theme. "Lets blame the white man, give us our land back". There are few books about the Chicano Movement with little bias.

^ that's a gem right there, it's sad that your friend was throwing that away but good thing you rescued that book from becoming basura. A chicana high school teacher who became my mentor was a huge fan of Reis Tijerina. How many pages is that book?

Didn't he end up regretting his takeover of that courthouse he did? And he became pretty conservative. I'm pretty sure that happened with him.

I have no idea of what happened to him after the 80's.

Anyway, I did some research and supposedly, they did a translation of the book but it's called 'They Called Me "King Tiger": My Struggle for the Land and Our Rights':
