Focusing on the Apache, Navaho, and neighboring nations, Jack Forbes reveals how long-standing, mutually beneficial relationships existing between the indigenous communities were upset by Spanish exploitation and slave-raiding, causing rebellions and widespread armed resistance that blunted the growth of the Spanish Empire.
