"An absorbing social history of the lives of the intrepid settlers who rallied around their traditional institutions--mission centers, municipalities, and the military arm of the crown--to secure the northernmost frontier of New Spain and to convert the land, as much as they were capable, into a productive segment of the empire. . . . This volume merits a wide audience especially among social scientists engaged in providing meaning to the Mexican American community in Texas."--New Mexico Historical Review"The exploration of the interrelationships among soldiers, civilian settlers, missionaries, and Indians in the San Antonio area is of special significance. This provides a refreshing approach for the study of early borderlands history, transcending the tendency among some historians to study these groups in isolation."--Journal of Texas Catholic History and CultureSince its first publication in 1991, this history of early San Antonio has won a 1992 Citation from the San Antonio Conservation Society and a Presidio La Bahia Award from the Sons of the Republic of Texas.
