Format: Hardcover
This book is a fascinating look at a topic that reveals much about what life, and death, were like in Spanish Colonial New Mexico. While most researchers focus on baptismal and marriage records to gain insight into a community's life and survival, Will de Chaparro looks in darker corners at a people in order to shed light on a culture that has thrived and survived for over four centuries.
