While this book undoubtedly contains much valuable history and documentation that may prove useful to genealogists and enthusiasts of New Mexican history, it is written almost solely from the Anglo perspective, and not only diminishes the valuable role played by the Spanish and Native populations in shaping the history of New Mexico, but at times is outright bigoted in it's depictions of them. The book contains "local histories" of the counties of New Mexico, but almost exclusively tells the stories of the Anglo settlers, thereby ignoring, or diminishing impact of the foundations laid by Spanish and Native families years before the arrival of the Anglos.
