This compact synthesis of David J. Weber's prize-winning history of colonial Spanish North America vividly tells the story of Spain's three-hundred-year tenure on the continent. From the first Spanish-Indian contact through Spain's gradual retreat, Weber offers a balanced assessment of the impact of each civilization upon the other.

Praise for the previous edition:

"I cannot imagine a single book giving a more comprehensive and balanced study of Spain's presence in North America."-Louis Kleber, History Today

"For readers seeking to understand the larger meaning of the Spanish heritage in North America, Weber's vivid narrative is a must. This is social and cultural history at its best."-Howard R. Lamar, Yale University

"A superb study."-Choice

"[A] deeply researched and splendidly conceived and written survey."-Alvin M. Josephy, Jr., New York Times Book Review
