Description

One of the first travel journals of its kind to be published, this epic poem about Juan de Onate's entrada that led to the founding of Nueva Mexico in 1598 (to become the state of New Mexico 314 years later) is full of the hopes and dreams of those who travelled with Onate. Historia de la Nueva Mexico, 1610 was written fourteen years before John Smith's History of Virginia. Its thirty-four cantos have long been considered a key source for early New Mexico history and this bilingual Spanish/English version presents it as literature. By situating 'Historia de la Nueva Mexico, 1610' within the Hispanic literary heritage, the work is restored to the canon of American literature.
