I read the whole book and it really REALLY blew. This book tries to focus on a subject in a specific chapter but then completely goes off talking about something else. The worse part is that his explanations try to go into so much detail that by the end of it you lose sight of what he was talking about in the first place. Not worth my time. GARBAGE!

The author made no attempt to gather information from the Pubelo people he gathered his data from the Spanish and the friars who gave a slanted self serving history. This is a more accurate accounting!
