9780865349704: Spanish Colonial Lives, Documents from the Spanish Colonial Archives of New Mexico, 1705-1774 (English and Spanish Edition)

On their return to New Mexico from El Paso after the 1680 Pueblo Revolt, the New Mexican settlers were confronted with continuous raids by hostile Indian tribes, disease and an inhospitable landscape. In spite of this, in the early and mid-eighteenth century, the New Mexicans went about their daily lives as best they could, as shown in original documents from the time. The documents show them making deals, traveling around the countryside and to and from El Paso and Mexico City, complaining about and arguing with each other, holding festivals, and making plans for the future of their children. It also shows them interacting with the presidio soldiers, the Franciscan friars and Inquisition officials, El Paso and Chihuahua merchants, the occasional Frenchman, and their Pueblo Indian allies. Because many of the documents include oral testimony, we are able to read what they had to say, sometimes angry, asking for help, or giving excuses for their behavior, as written down by a scribe at the time. This book includes fifty-four original handwritten documents from the early and mid-eighteenth century. Most of the original documents are located in the Spanish Archives of New Mexico, although some are from the Bancroft Library at the University of California at Berkeley, the Archivo General de la Nacion in Mexico City, and elsewhere. They were selected for their description of Spanish Colonial life, of interest to the many descendants of the characters that appear in them, and because they tell a good story. A translation and transcription of each document is included as well as a synopsis, background notes, and biographical notes. They can be considered a companion, in part, to Ralph Emerson Twitchell's 1914 two volumes, The Spanish Archives of New Mexico, summarizing the documents of the Spanish Archives of New Mexico, now available in new editions from Sunstone Press.

Review:

Spanish Colonial Lives is a gem among a rare genre of books. A large amount of New Mexico's history of the 1600s, 1700s and early 1800s is unwritten. This is due to the fact that archival records are in the Spanish language and only a small portion have been translated and made available to the public. In addition, only a small number of historians have taken the time and effort to study the 17th- and 18th-century archival documents in order to bring to light the history of New Mexico, especially for the periods of the 17th and 18th centuries. The pages of this book, consisting of the collection of translations and transcriptions of 54 documents from the Spanish Archives of New Mexico, are full of details related to a variety of circumstances that constituted the lives of Spanish citizens of New Mexico between the years 1705 and 1774. These details are related to us in the words and experiences of individuals that were recorded and preserved in archival government documents. Although described as a companion to the catalogue of The Spanish Archives of New Mexico by Ralph Emerson Twitchell (1914; reprinted by Sunstone Press, 2008), Spanish Colonial Lives also serves as an excellent sequel to the Journals of Don Diego de Vargas, 1692-1704 (Kessell, Hendricks, Dodge, and Miller, eds., 6 Vols., University of New Mexico Press, 1992-2002). Whereas the journals of Governor Vargas are a military account of historical events, the documents collected in Spanish Colonial Lives consist of records with personal accounts of specific events in the lives of particular Nuevomeijcanos, revealing the conditions, customs, and challenging circumstances experience by many people who made the dangerous frontier of New Mexico their home. ... The records collected in this volume emphasize the difficulties and dangers of living in frontier territory with the constant risk of raids on Spanish and Pueblo Indian by nomadic tribes. Yet, the Spanish citizens, Pueblo Indians, and the various nomadic tribes of Apache, Navajo, Comanche, Kiowa and Ute depended on each other for trade of needed goods and food. ... The Spanish transcriptions of the documents are a valuable reference and offer insights into the language of the era with a combination of common Spanish legal phrases and local turns of phrases and words specific to New Mexico. A glossary near the end of the book is a useful reference and there are several maps to consult for locating communities mentioned in the documents. Spanish Colonial Lives is not a book that has to be read sequentially from cover to cover. Each of the 54 documents of this collection stands on its own as a brief glimpse into the culture and experiences of people of eighteenth-century New Mexico as described in their own words. The task for transcribing, translating, and editing a volume of archival records is demanding. The dedicated effort of J. Richard Salazar (translator) and Linda Tigges (editor) in producing this volume is a testament to their passion for documenting New Mexico history. Their book joins the ranks of a small number of books of the same genre and is a valuable contribution to understanding the history New Mexico as told with the recorded words of 18th-century citizens of New Mexico. --Jose Esquibel, Goodreads, July 5, 2014
