In his February 3, 2012 ‘Trail Dust' column, published in ‘The Santa Fe New Mexican,’ Marc Simons recounts the lengthy history of the research and preparation of the forthcoming book on Juan Domínguez de Mendoza:

I feel quite honored and very privileged to be associated with Scholes, Adams, and Simmons, all well-respected scholars of New Mexico history, and pleased in helping bring the Domínguez de Mendoza book into publication after the passing of 82 years since the military service records of Juan Domínguez de Mendoza were discovered by Scholes in Spain.
