Hispanic Albuquerque, 1706-1846

Hispanic Albuquerque, 1706-1846 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In anticipation of the tricentennial of Albuquerque's founding in 2006, Hispanic Albuquerque presents an engaging, narrative history of the city from 1706 to 1846, its era as a Hispanic community. Written by the foremost historian of colonial and nineteenth-century New Mexico, this book is an abridgment of his award-winning Albuquerque: A Narrative History, first published in 1982 and long unavailable.

Here is history to fascinate and inform. In re-examining the founding of the city, Simmons shows how contemporary land and water rights issues are tied to the original document creating the town. His account of commercial activities and relations with Native Americans is a reminder of the complexity of daily life in the colonial period.

Book News Annotation:

Simmons, who has written widely on the history of New Mexico, has abridged his 1982 (also U. of New Mexico Press) to create this shorter, approachable history. The history chronicles the founding of Albuquerque in 1706 by the Spaniards and continues through 1846, when Mexico ceased to govern New Mexico. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
