Title

Personal Narrative of Explorations in Texas, New Mexico, California, Sonora, and Chihuahua

Description

If Bartlett (1805-1886) had been a more competent boundary commissioner, he might not have written this marvelous travelogue, one of the best published about the American Southwest and northern Mexico. Bookseller, politician, artist, and author, Bartlett never passed up an opportunity to visit and describe interesting archaeological and historic sites as he traveled from Acapulco, Mexico, to San Francisco, California, with the commission surveying the boundary line determined by the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that ended the war between the United States and Mexico in 1846-48. --Alfredo Gonzales.
