Along with their stories, we are also offered glimpses into the lives of the Mexican women who worked along side them, and acute insight into the ways, beliefs, and mythology of the Native Americans they encountered along the way. Through her eloquent, vividly imagined poetry, Lavonne J. Adams has given us a remarkable and balanced account of this small, but vital, piece of American history.
