Sonoran Strongman provides an in-depth look at a turbulent period in Mexico's history. During this era, Sonora was plagued with domestic unrest and threatened by foreign invasion. The state's citizens, hoping Ignacio Pesqueira would be the "man of action" capable of restoring order, elected him governor by an overwhelming vote. He became a virtual dictator and ruled Sonora from 1856–1876. Pesqueira was the product of troubled times, and the times shaped his destiny. Author Acuña presents an authoritative account of the "Strongman's" rise to power and vividly portrays the suffering of northern Mexico's people.
