This work related how Commandant General Jacobo Ugarte face the problem of marauding Apaches on the colonists on the border of New Spain and the extent to which he was able to solve it, using a new Indian policy adopted by Spain in 1786. Political circumstances prevented Ugarte from completing the pacification of the Apaches, but it is significant that his strategems were essentially the same as those employed with complete success by the Americans a century later.
