Blackwell North Amer This long-lost journal gives a unique look into the old Navajo country. Recently rediscovered, it is both the earliest and only eyewitness account of the traditional Navajo homeland in the eighteenth century. It reveals new information on Hispanic New Mexico and relations with the Indians. For the first twenty days in August 1705, Roque Madrid led about 100 Spanish soldiers and citizens together with some 300 Pueblo Indian allies on a 312-mile march to torch Navajo corn fields and homes in northwest New Mexico. Three times they fought hand-to-hand to retaliate for Navajo raids in which Spanish settlers were robbed and killed. The bilingual text permits appreciation of the unusually literate and dramatic journal. Historical and archeological data are carefully tapped to retrace the route, and biographical data on the key participants round out the volume.
