This is a very good book about 300 years of Spanish / Pueblo interaction and conflict. I have a copy of this book at home. But my copy is better: it's signed by the author.
I followed a link that showed Miera's 1758 Map of New Mexico.
When I was in my late teens, my dad shared with me a black and white photograph of a certain old man. He said that this picture was of my great-great grandfather Crespin Torres. Crespin's gaze in the photo was fierce. His disheveled appearance - a ragged beard, large nose, and ill-fitting clothes - added to his terrifying impression. I imagined Crespin to be a tough, mean old man.
