Summary
Maps the influence of America's Hispanic past, from the explorers and conquistadors who helped colonize Puerto Rico and Florida, to the missionaries and rancheros who settled in California and the 20th-century resurgence in major cities like Chicago and Miami
Summary
While the majority of history textbooks in the U.S. emphasize English colonization and the English-speaking heritage of North America, large portions of what is now the U.S. were first settled by the Spanish. In Our America, historian Felipe Fernndez-Armesto paints a more complete portrait of early colonists, including Dutch and French as well as British and Spanish settlers. Spanish cultural influences, the possible identity of the real Zorro, and details of major and minor Anglo-Spanish conflicts emerge in this engaging though potentially controversial work that argues for inclusion of the U.S. in Latin America. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
