From the back cover: "Bolton transformed Spanish Borderlands studies from an overlooked field into one of the most exciting and significant areas of inquiry in the twentieth century. Concentrating his research interests on the Spanish explorers and missionaries of colonial North America, he brought into sharp focus their role in shaping a fascinating part of United States history.... In this definitive biography, Bannon offers an important look at Bolton--the man as well as the scholar."
