THE CONQUEST OF DON PEDRO

Coming West to find health and re-birth, Leon Mendes, a Jew from Manhattan's lower East Side, became a significant figure in the bridging of the frontier after the Americans took over the region around Santa Fe. Establishing his store in Don Pedro, Leo makes firm friends and builds success through trust. Though he must buck Don Vierra, though he wins the passion of his wife and the love of her niece there is an honesty of expression that will not offend, or detract from the value of a beautifully written novel of the region.
