Title

Hispanic Arizona, 1536-1856

Description

In this monumental study, Officer works through centuries of documents to tell the stories, and celebrate the accomplishments, of soldiers, merchants, ranchers, and their families, along with a succession of priests and missionaries, who settled the desert reaches of far northwestern New Spain (present-day Arizona and Sonora). Apache, Opata, Papago (Tohono O’odham), Pima, Seri, and Yuma Indians appear in Officer’s narrative, as well, along with trappers, prospectors, Forty-niners, American soldiers, and outlaws.
