"The value of this work rests upon its treatment of the lives of the people.... The food and drink, the dress, and the distinctive social customs are described in detail.... This is one of the better books on borderlands history to appear in many years". -- Warren A. Beck, Western Historical Quarterly.
"An excellent account.... It is a much needed, major contribution to the literature of the Southwest and should be required reading for all students in the field. It is well written and makes the life and times of the Spanish settlers in Santa Fe and San Antonio as vivid and real as those in Plymouth or Williamsburg". -- Ted J. Warner, Journal of American History.
