it was amazing

I loved this book about a clash of cultures! It is a fascinating account of Pope's brilliant organizational skills in leading a revolt against the Spanish, and one that Native Americans finally win. Unfortunately, it was short lived. The revolt expelled all Spanish out of what is now New Mexico, and the Indians destroyed the Spanish churches and crosses, and resumed their native beliefs. He used knotted cords and a full moon to lead his successful revolt. Pope died eight years later, and by 1692 the Spanish were back. The book pointed out many scenarios for the revolt, both similar and very different, in the historical and anthropological context. I found it very interesting and highly recommend it.
