Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shirley Nelson
This small, informative book opens with a True/False question, promising the answer to follow somewhere within the text, sending young readers on a treasure hunt for facts. Illustrations, photographs, short articles, and bursts of text easily lead the reader through the history of the Spanish presence in New Mexico. The first mission in this territory was built by Spanish priests in 1598. The Spanish had first come to New Mexico to search for legendary cities of gold. They did not find these cities, but the Spanish built missions where they forced the Native Americans to convert to Christianity and to live following the Spanish way of life. The Apache, the Navajo, and the Pueblo were the most prominent of these people. The Native Americans, especially the Pueblo, became resentful of the Spanish who arrested their priests and punished them for not obeying Spanish rules. In 1860, the Pueblos led a revolt which drove the Spanish from Santa Fe and out of the territory. However, the Spanish returned in 1692 and remained in power until they were threatened in the 1770's by the Comanche. This title from the "A True Booktrade," series describes the troubles between the Spanish and the Native Americans, showing the influence of both cultures on what became New Mexico while highlighting the role of the Spanish missions. Pronunciation guides, a glossary, and an index make this volume easy to use as a reference. Reviewer: Shirley Nelson
