Description : Excerpt from New Mexico Historical Review, 1952, Vol. 27 Y people had always stuck to the Atlantic Coast; my father's family was from Maine, and my mother's from Philadelphia. As a matter Of fact I do not believe that any Of them had ever been west Of the Mississippi river; to them, Pittsburgh was West. From the time that I began to read, I preferred books about the West: travel, history and fiction'. It happened that I went to school in Racine, Wisconsin, where there were sons Of several Of the Pioneers Of the Far West: Paxton, whose father was a big cowman and plains man; Kuykendall, whose father had been a Pony Express Rider. The tales I heard from them made me decide that when I was Old enough I would follow their trail. When I was about sixteen years Old, I heard that a friend Of the family had decided to invest in a cow ranch in New Mexico; this was my chance. After much persuasion my mother gave her consent to my starting out. I was pretty strong and husky for my age and Of course considered myself a man. What a grand time I had selecting and buying my outfit: blankets, annel shirts and strong clothes, no khaki in those days; a forty-four Winchester ri e, a forty five Colt revolver, which I afterwards traded for a forty four, so that I used the same cartridges for both, with a good supply of ammunition and a reloading outfit. Early in April Of 1886, I left by the way Of Chicago for Socorro, New Mexico, a Six day trip. I left Chicago at night.

Description : Excerpt from New Mexico Historical Review This was the supply side Of the equation for the years Of the nineteenth century following 1836. The demand side, on the other hand, was most absorbent and strong. By 1840 there were hundreds Of small and growing centers stretching from New England through the South and from the Atlantic to the Mississippi. The United States was figuratively crying for humanity to man its towns. Furthermore, the traditional methods Of wholesale and retail distribution were being strained to the limit and were in need of supplement. As we learn in the principles of economics: when such a demand schedule intersects with such a supply schedule, something is compelled to happen. Something did.

Description : Why did New Mexico remain so long in political limbo before being admitted to the Union as a state? Combining extensive research and a clear and well-organized style, Robert W. Larson provides the answers to this question in a thorough and comprehensive account of the territory’s extraordinary six-decade struggle for statehood. This book is no mere chronology of political moves, however. It is the history of a turbulent frontier state, sweeping into the current almost every colorful character of the territory. Not only politicians but ranchers, outlaws, soldiers, newspapermen, Indians, merchants, lawyers, and people from every walk of life were involved. This is a book for the reader who is interested in any aspect of southwestern territorial history.

Description : "This volume represents a bridge between Colorado's pre-historic past and the time of Anglo-American settlement in our state. Few people realize that hundreds of years before the discovery of gold in Colorado during 1859, a highly developed civilization had explored and settled the area now known as New Mexico. ... This long cultural heritage was overshadowed when Colorado [and New Mexico] became part of the United States during the mid-1800s"--Foreword.

Description : This book investigates three Indian revolts in the Americas: the 1680 uprising of the Pueblo Indians against the Spanish; the Great Rebellion in Bolivia, 1780--82; and the Caste War of Yucatan that began in 1849 and was not finally crushed until 1903. Nicholas A. Robins examines their causes, course, nature, leadership, and goals. He finds common features: they were revitalization movements that were both millenarian and exterminatory in their means and objectives; they sought to restore native rule and traditions to their societies; and they were movements born of despair and oppression that were sustained by the belief that they would witness the dawning of a new age. His work underscores the link that may be found, but is not inherent, between genocide, millennialism, and revitalization movements in Latin America during the colonial and early national periods.
