Empires Lost and Won: The Spanish Heritage in the Southwest by Albert Marrin

A vivid examination of the Spanish influence in the American Southwest by a Boston Globe/Horn Book Award winner

Albert Marrin, prize-winning historian, presents the sweeping tale of the Spanish conquest of the American Southwest. Early in 1540, Francisco Vasquez de Coronado left Mexico City to claim the fabled cities that lay to the north. The cities were really Pueblo Indian villages, but by 1610, Santa Fe was firmly established as the capital of New Mexico. In the nineteenth century Texans voted for independence from Mexico, the United States declared war, and in the end Mexico lost its entire northern empire. Martin sets this powerful tale firmly in its period and place, making dramacticly clear the importance of the unfolding events.
