About this title

Synopsis:

Spanning two and a half centuries, from the earliest contacts in the 1540s to the crumbling of Spanish power in the 17908, Storms Brewed in Other Men's Worlds is a panoramic view of Indian peoples and Spanish and French intruders in the early Southwest. The primary focus is the world of the American Indian, ranging from the Caddos in the east to the Hopis in the west, and including the histories of the Pueblo, Apache, Navajo, Ute, and Wichita peoples. Within this region, from Texas to New Mexico, the Comanches played a key, formative role, and no less compelling is the story of the Hispanic frontier peoples who weathered the precarious, often arduous process of evolving coexistence with the Indians on the northern frontier of New Spain. First published in 1975, this second edition includes a new preface and afterword by Elizabeth A. H. John, in which she discusses current research issues and the status of the Indian peoples of the Southwest.

Review:

The interior Southwest United States--which Elizabeth John defines as including "that vast arena stretching westward from the pine-forested great bend of the Red River to the red desert mesas of the Colorado Plateau"--was a hotly contested territory for generations. First came the Spanish, who conquered it while never completely subduing the indigenous culture. Then came the French, who fought with Spain over control of what is now Louisiana and eastern Texas. Still later came the English and, finally, the Americans, who were able to capitalize on the exhaustion of the great colonial powers. John, a highly regarded historian of the region, takes a panoptic view of these complicated events and delivers a fine, gracefully written overview.
