Winner, Presidio La Bahia Award, Sons of the Republic of Texas, 2000 Texas Old Missions and Forts Restoration Association Book Award, the Texas Old Missions and Fort Restoration Association and the Texas Catholic Historical Society, 2001 The Spanish colonial era in Texas (1528-1821) continues to emerge from the shadowy past with every new archaeological and historical discovery. In this book, years of archival sleuthing by Donald E. Chipman and Harriett Denise Joseph now reveal the real human beings behind the legendary figures who discovered, explored, and settled Spanish Texas. By combining dramatic, real-life incidents, biographical sketches, and historical background, the authors bring to life these famous (and sometimes infamous) men of Spanish Texas: Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca Alonso de Leon Francisco Hidalgo Louis Juchereau de St. Denis Antonio Margil The Marques de Aguayo Pedro de Rivera Felipe de Rabago Jose de Escandon Athanase de Mezieres The Marques de Rubi Antonio Gil Ibarvo Domingo Cabello Jose Bernardo Gutierrez de Lara Joaquin de Arredondo The authors also devote a chapter to the women of Spanish Texas, drawing on scarce historical clues to tell the stories of both well-known and previously unknown Tejana, Indian, and African women.
