About the Author

Reviews

"Amador, a true product of the frontier in that he was the son of a Presidio soldier and himself served as a Presidio soldier, provides a lively recounting of his life and that of his extended family, full of revealing details that are valuable in reconstructing the ethnography and language of the time. . . . This extremely rich text is more than a welcome addition to the stock of testimonials for the history of California."--The Americas


"The Amador/Asisara interview is the only document we have which contains the reminiscences of a Californio and of an indigenous Californian side by side. . . . Mora-Torres's excellent volume should become an indispensable source for all interested in the Mexican period of California history."--Journal of San Diego History


"This book presents a very convincing and interesting narrative about Mexican California. Its frankness and honesty are refreshing."--Richard Griswold del Castillo, San Diego State University
