Hernán Cortés was the first known European to enter into the area now known as Nayarit, which he claimed for Spain as part Nueva Galicia. Under Nuño de Guzman, Spaniards took the region with considerable brutality, causing the indigenous inhabitants to revolt, in what was later referred to as the Mixtón War. After almost two centuries of resistance, the last independent Cora communities were incorporated into Spanish administration by force in 1722. Then followed intense missionary efforts by Jesuits to convert the indigenous.


Soiled, pages un-read with pages uncut, corners bumped, light edge wear else a very good copy.
