Inhaltsangabe: In 2010, Santa Fe officially turns 400 four centuries of a rich and contentious history of Indian, Spanish, and American interactions. Pueblo Indians settled along the banks of the Rio Santa Fe as long ago as the sixth century CE. By 1610, Spanish colonists had established the town as a distant outpost in Spain's expanding empire. Drawing on recent archaeological discoveries and historical research, this updated edition of a classic history details the town's founding, its survival through revolt and reconquest, its turbulent politics, its lively trade with Mexico and the United States, and the lives of its most important citizens, from the governors Peralta, Vargas, and Armijo to the madam dona Tules. The origins and transformations of the very building blocks of Santa Fe, from the iconic Palace of the Governors and the city's acequia irrigation system, are revealed in these pages.
Über den Autor: David Grant Noble is an acclaimed photographer and editor of New Light on Chaco Canyon, The Hohokam: Ancient People of the Southwest, and author of Ancient Ruins of the Southwest.
