Contents: Hispanics and Indians of northern New Mexico revolted in August 1837 and killed the governor and sixteen of his officials. The episode is a major one in nineteenth century New Mexico history, yet it has never been told by drawing on accounts left by the participants. In this book the author has assembled documents now scattered throughout Mexico and the United States and recreated the complex social and political events surrounding the uprising. Illustrated with photographs. Indexed.
