"This classic history of New Mexico is recommended for students of history and literature, as well as for the general reader interested in the early Hispanic settlement of the southwestern United States."
"Pérez de Villagra's epic poem chronicles his journeys with the Oñate expedition as the legendary group traveled from El Paso to explore New Mexico, experiencing hunger, thirst and deprivations and gory conflicts as they struggled to reach Santa Fe. The language is rich, eloquent and often lovely, but, like the original expedition, this is not a journey for the fainthearted. The author pulls no punches about the violence and agonies of the expedition."
