Remote Beyond Compare: Letters of Don Diego de Vargas to His Family from New Spain and Mexico, 1675-1706 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book, originally published in 1989 and long unavailable, is reissued in conjunction with the completed multi-volume translation of the official correspondence of don Diego De Vargas, late seventeenth-century governor and re-colonizer of New Mexico. These personal letters not only illuminate their author but the history of New Mexico as don Diego experienced it. Like the Journals of don Diego de Vargas, this volume reflects years of document collection, translation, and annotation by the Vargas Project directed by John L. Kessell.

Synopsis:

These personal letters illuminate the author and the history of New Mexico as don Diego experienced it.

About the Author

Historian John L. Kessell, professor emeritus of history at the University of New Mexico, has devoted nearly two decades compiling, translating, and editing the Vargas papers along with Rick Hendricks, Meredith D. Dodge, and Larry D. Miller.
