This important book is a detailed examination of the Indian frontiers in the southwest in the late 18th century and the complicated relationships between the Spanish and the natives -- particularly the Comanche, Moqui (Hopi), Apache, and Pueblo. Some of these tribes saw Spain as the great adversary; others as an important ally.
