When Jesus Came, the Corn Mothers Went Away Reviews


'A hypnotizing study of the encounter between Indians and Europeans in New Mexico and of the formation of a colonial society, When Jesus Came is not 'lite' history. It is as theoretically sophisticated and as thoroughly researched as academic history gets. Gutierrez's work is proof that historians can have it both ways, meeting scholarly standards while also offering stories and ideas to capture the interests of a wider audience.'Patricia Nelson Limerick, The New York Times Book Review
