Mary Jo Ignoffo teaches in the history department of De Anza College in Cupertino, California. She is the author of five other books about California history.
"Captive of the Labyrinth is an excellent read. Ignoffo finally sets the record straight on one of the most fascinating and misunderstood women in California history. A real page-turner!"--Gary F. Kurutz, California State Library Director of Special Collections"Like the gleaming metal on a rifle's trigger, Ignoffo's argument shines as she demystifies one of the most prominent aspects of the Winchester mythology-the one revolving around the Winchester repeater, guilt, and the macabre." - Michelle Stonis, Southern California Quarterly
