A special reprint LIMITED EDITION of this classic work, first published in 1964 by the Naylor Company. This historical work is unique for Hispanic genealogists because of the author’s notes to each chapter wherein he details names of pioneer missionaries, founding families, soldiers under the command of various captains, commandants, and expedition leaders, and others. The chapter notes also include a profusion of interesting ancillary information and annotations. Lesser known tales are recounted here of the dramatic and bloody struggles Spanish pioneers experienced with the fierce Chichimeca Indian tribes of Northern Mexico. Masterful and well researched work. We are offering a discount and featuring this item again on our front page to bring it to the attention of our customers and to make it more affordable. We highly recommend this book among the top twenty- five “must have” books in Hispanic genealogy and history. San Antonio, 1999, Limited Edition Reprint, signed by the author. 232 Pgs., HB.
