The Spanish Frontier in North America
This compact synthesis of David J. Weber's prize-winning history of colonial Spanish North America vividly tells the story of Spain's three-hundred-year tenure on the continent. From the first Spanish-Indian contact through Spain's gradual retreat, Weber offers a balanced assessment of the impact of each civilization upon the other.
