Santa Fe Then and Now

Through its long history, spanning over 400 years, Santa Fe, New Mexico has faced many challenges: strife between civil and religious officials of the 17th century, the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, a stream of French and Anglo-American merchants via the Santa Fe Trail, and the transfer of sovereignty from Mexico to the United States after the 1846 invasion of U.S. troops. All of these historical developments have left their imprint on the physical appearance of this most fascinating of cities. And there have been inevitable changes in the face of the land and the city. This book takes a look at the 'then' of Santa Fe and guides us into the 'now' of today.
