Las Tierras de Nuevo Mexico. [The Lands of New Mexico.]
Swadesh, Frances Leon; And Others
New Mexico was inhabited thousands of years ago. Each group of settlers saw the land in distinct ways. For some, its beauty consisted of its quality, the abundance of water, and the hope of a good harvest. For others, its beautiful sites were of more importance. Thus, each group established its own manner of living on the land and of using it. Some influenced others as to their way of using the land. Archaeologists and historians can teach us much about the human experiences in New Mexico. This booklet, written in Spanish, presents the history of the various people who inhabited New Mexico and their relationship with the lands. Covering from prehistoric times to the present, the booklet presents information on: New Mexico's diverse environment, life zones, first inhabitants, and prehistoric agricultural communities; the Eve of the Spanish Conquest; the Apachean nomads; the State as a 17th century Spanish colony; New Mexico in the 18th and 19th centuries; the Eve of the Conquest by the United States; New Mexico as a U.S. territory (1846-1912); and New Mexico in the 20th century.
