A Harvest of Reluctant Souls
More filters. Sort order. Mar 07, Mara rated it liked it. This is an interesting glimpse in to the way someone in this time self described what was happening in New Mexico.
There are clearly issues of unreliable narration but those reveal biases and give insight of their own in to the way the Spanish thought about the various native tribes of the area, the landscape, and their role in inserting themselves. The reader of the audio version is not great, very monotone and has weird pronunciations of local place names. You are a traveler in what is now known as New Mexico in the years You have been asked to send a report of your journeys to the king of Spain.
What do you write? This is a new translation by University of New Mexico professor Baker Morrow of a true classic of travel literature. Do you call yourself an "accidental tourist"? Do you enjoy the American Southwest? If you have said yes to any of these questions, you need to read this book. This book is a modern translation of Father Alonso de Benavides' history of New Mexico during the Spanish mission period circa De Benavides provides an understandably biased but utterly engrossing account of native peoples in this region, their customs, foodstuffs, native flora, crops, and way of life plus the actions of his own Franciscan brothers in the region.

Jessica rated it it was amazing Feb 02, Melanie rated it liked it Jan 13, On the first appeal, the appellate judges overturned the dismissal and sent the case back to Huling's court. But in the process, the appeals court interpreted state livestock law to exclude undomesticated, unowned horses, thereby removing them from NMLB jurisdiction.
The NMLB, backed by a group of Placitas residents who intervened in the lawsuit, then argued the appeals court had cleaned up the conflict making the case moot—that is: leaving no issues to continue the case. WHOA, however, argued unsuccessfully that the case should be reopened to investigate new issues. Huling dismissed the case again, WHOA appealed again, and Judge Jonathan Sutin in the appellate decision wrote, "We cannot conclude that the district court erred in concluding that the issues related to the Placitas horses are moot.
WHOA's attorney did not respond to a query from the Signpost about whether he and his client would appeal the new decision to the state Supreme Court. From the meeting houses, or moradas, the brotherhood practiced acts of charity and memorialized the spirit of penance. Such practices drew much attention and severe criticism from those outside the brotherhood. The society was driven underground. On November 11, Robert J.
