"When author Hardy traveled from the mainland to the Baja and around the Sea of Cortes, he was confronted with great empty vistas of terra incognita ... Lieut. Hardy, an Englishman lately an officer in the Royal Navy, described Mexico he visited as it was shortly after throwing off the heavy yoke of Imperial Spain. He traveled literally thousands of miles by boat, muleback and shank's mare. There were no luxuries for travelers in Mexico in those days" (Publisher's Preface).
