More > and children walking through the dusty, cobbled streets. These were the first images that came to mind when Ian Middleton thought of Mexico. But was it really like that? He had read James A Michener's historical novel on Mexico, and it had portrayed a country of rich cultural diversity. These are the things that had ignited in Ian a burning desire to see this country for himself. As a novice traveller this was an extremely daring move. Especially as he would be travelling alone. Ian knew nobody in Mexico. Although he’d travelled the year before for the first time in Australia, he’d had the advantage of knowing people there. This would his first real trip in a foreign land completely alone.< Less

More > Montezuma Edition. Prescott expressed interest in his correspondence in writing a biography of Molière, and Ticknor records that he sent Prescott "a collection of about 50 volumes" of relevant material. However, after writing to Ángel Calderón de la Barca, a Spanish minister living in Mexico, who was able to provide source material, Prescott started research on what was to become the History of the Conquest of Mexico. There was relatively little scholarship on Aztec civilization, and Prescott dismissed much of it as "speculation", and he therefore had to rely almost exclusively on primary sources. He considered Edward King's theory that the pre-Columbian civilizations were non-indigenous to be fallacious, although he was greatly indebted to him for his anthology of Aztec codices in the Antiquities of Mexico.< Less

Blackfoot power and dominance began to subside in both the north and south of the trail, while the Mountain Cree now became the dominant group along the northern portion of the trail and in adjacent areas of British Columbia, Montana and Idaho. At the same time the Iroquois freemen, scattered from Lesser Slave Lake to Utah, became fully integrated into the Cree. Though the Blackfoot continued to be prominent and dominant in both north and south, culturally the area was now divided into the violent and hostile south and the relatively peaceful north. Throughout this area a rudi-mentary Postal service now connected the far-flung Cree. 522 pages.< Less
