Faded Pueblos: of the Tiguex War


Faded Pueblos: of the Tiguex War

This 111-page illustrated paperback describes about a dozen Tiwa Pueblo villages on both sides of the Rio Grande near Albuquerque, N.M., that resisted the Coronado expedition in pitched battles over the winter of 1540–41 in the first named Indian war in what is now the U.S. That was followed by guerrilla warfare the following winter until the Spaniards retreated to Mexico in early 1542. Endnotes are on the final pages.

Described are the locations, culture, religion, and history of those pueblos and other Pueblo villages in New Mexico.

Printed in black-and-white inside with a color cover, the illustrated paperback is available for purchase in the gift shop at Petroglyph National Monument. It's for sale at Amazon online. It also can be ordered at most bookstores and online sites.
