KIRKUS REVIEW

A record of the explorations and surveying of the vast area the U. S. acquired in 1848 on the settlement of the Mexican War begins with the John Bartlett commission, and with its sprawling wealth of material covers all from wild Mexican fiestas to the chicanery in Washington. In capturing too, the significance of our growth, it is first rate American that should rouse any random interest.
