Presented for the first time is a detailed picture of the Spanish settlement landscape of New Mexico during the period from the beginning of colonisation in 1598 up to 1680 when the colonists were forced to retreat for a time. Despite scarcity of documentation, Barrett has pulled together the disparate material available from collections of published documents as well as genealogical and archaeological findings to craft a fine- grained analysis of the location of Spanish landholdings in the context of existing Pueblo village lands and the resources of the natural environment. Her study also includes discussion of the demographic dynamics of the period, the founding and settling of Santa Fe, and the activities of Spanish civil and religious establishments related to land, labour, and tribute. Barrett's work adds a much-needed dimension to colonial studies of this period.
