Search for the Camino Real: A History of San Blas and the Road to Get There


Search for the Camino Real: A History of San Blas and the Road to Get There Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Both historical investigation and travelogue, this documented study of the end of the Camino Real and San Blas, Mexico, is woven into the author's personal account of the search for remnants of Mexico's colonial road in the lowlands and sierras of modern Nayarit, aided and accompanied in his excursions by various regional historians, local guides, and curious companions. And like the old road running through the contemporary landscape, the historical narrative merges into the story of the region's modern character and development. To explore the Nayarit's wild and gorgeous geography, trying to site the ancient Camino Real, is to stumble over another road running toward the state's future economic development as part of the Mexican Riviera. Nearly five hundred years after the Spanish conquest of Mexico, the history of San Blas and the road to get there is still being written. This is a contemporary narrative portrait. Maps, photos, footnotes, and annotated bibliography.
