9780806123684: The Last Conquistador: Juan de Onate and the Settling of the Far Southwest (The Oklahoma Western Biographies)

This book chronicles the life and frontier career of Don Juan de Oñate, the first colonizer of the old Spanish Borderlands. Born in Zacatecas, Mexico, in the mid-sixteenth century, Don Juan was the prominent son of an aristocratic silver-mining family.

In 1598, in his late forties, Oñate led a formidable expedition of settlers, with wagons and livestock, on an epic march northward to the upper Rio Grade Valley of New Mexico. There he established the first European settlement west of the Mississippi, launching a significant chapter in early American history.

In his activities he displayed qualities typical of Spain’s sixteenth-century men of action; in his career we find a summation of the motives, aspirations, intentions, strengths, and weaknesses of the Hispanic pioneers who settled the Borderlands.

About the Author:

Historian Marc Simmons is a founder and the first president of the Santa Fe Trail Association. His forty-nine books include six about the Trail and The Last Conquistador: Juan de Oñate and the Settling of the Far Southwest.

From Library Journal:

The history of hostile relations between New Mexico's Native Americans and their Hispanic conquerors is the subtext to this biography of the life of Onate, a Mexican of Basque descent who spent the years 1598 to 1607 exploring the Southwest from his colonial base in San Gabriel, just north of today's Santa Fe. Though he and his colonists owed their survival to the food and shelter provided by the Pueblo Indians, they were unable to coexist with other tribes, slaughtering many Native Americans. Onate achieved neither his goal of finding silver mines nor of gaining Christian converts. He ultimately left in disgrace. Historian Simmons rarely questions Onate's assumptions that the Native Americans owed him their land and their lives. His is a straightforward historical narrative occasionally relieved by insights into the Spanish character. No other recent or easily accessible biographies exist for this controversial figure, still known in some circles as the Father of New Mexico. Recommended for large collections where Southwest history or explorers are a priority.
