This is the first history of the French-speaking men and women in New Mexico. They were from all walks of life, explorers, adventurers, trappers, soldiers, merchants, priests, farmers, ranchers, bankers, scientists, artists, politicians, lawyers, spies, and criminals. Whether exemplary, disreputable, dramatic, or mundane, their lives were filled with love and death, chases and hunts, and successes and failures. Their stories range to the rest of the American Southwest, and to the trails leading to Santa Fe.
