Through careful examination of primary documents, this book reveals that the true purpose of Zebulon Pike's western expedition in 1806-1807 was not innocent exploration of the West but an espionage mission in preparation for an American invasion of New Mexico.


* Clarifies the true purpose of Zebulon Pike's 1806-1807 western journey and answers the question asked for more than 200 years: Was Pike an explorer or a spy?

* Examines historical evidence that Pike's actual purpose was to conduct a military reconnaissance in preparation for an American invasion of New Mexico

* Explains how Pike rightfully earned the title, "Father of the Santa Fe Trail," with the 1810 publication of his book, An Account of Expeditions
