One of the first travel journals of its kind to be published, this epic poem about Juan de Onate's entrada that led to the founding of Nueva Mexico in 1598 (to become the state of New Mexico 314 years later) is full of the hopes and dreams of those who travelled with Onate. Historia de la Nueva Mexico, 1610 was written fourteen years before John Smith's History of Virginia. Its thirty-four cantos have long been considered a key source for early New Mexico history and this bilingual Spanish/English version presents it as literature. By situating 'Historia de la Nueva Mexico, 1610' within the Hispanic literary heritage, the work is restored to the canon of American literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This handsome critical and annotated edition..sets the bar impressively high..for all subsequent scholarship dedicated to the colonial period in the American Southwest."
"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."
