Tracing the Santa Fe Trail

By Ronald J Dulle 878425716

From 1821 to 1880, bold and daring men loaded their wagons with trade goods and set out from Missouri to Santa Fe, in the newly independent nation of Mexico. These merchants, teamsters, and travlers exchanged not only material goods, but also ideas and customs, forever altering the cultural and economic landscape for American, Mexican, and Indian peoples along the route. In Tracing the Santa Fe Trail, modern, full-color images of the trail are juxtaposed with historical commentary to create a photographic journey that adroitly blends past and present.

Colorful characters such as Bronco Sue, Sadie Orchard and Lizzie McGrath were noted mavens of mayhem, while many other women were notorious gamblers, bawdy madams or confidence tricksters.
