Publisher's Description

Luciano Herrera never backed away from a fight. He was a tough man from a tough place-northern New Mexico. When the U.S. Army entered New Mexico in 1846, Luciano knew that changes were coming. The rules of the old frontier no longer applied. Americano law now governed New Mexico. When Luciano caught his wife in bed with another man, he faced a difficult decision. Before the U.S. conquest, Luciano would have killed the other man without hesitation. But faced with the possibility of doing time in an American prison, Luciano spared the man's life, setting off a series of events that would bring great misfortune to Luciano and his family. For the rest of his life, Luciano was haunted by his decision and struggled to maintain his sense of honor in a changing world. In Timely Conquest, Jerry Martinez tells the story of his great-grandfathers, Luciano Herrera and Jesus Maria Martin, as they adapt to life in New Mexico under U.S. control. They trade and travel with Americans and Indians, they fight in the Civil War, and they experience love and loss. Timely Conquest offers a fascinating snapshot of a time of change for the American West and for the people who called it home.
