Hispanic America, Texas, and the Mexican War examines the history of the southwestern area of the United States. Topics covered include the settlement of the area that became the southwestern portion of the United States, detailing how it evolved from land settled by Native Americans, to Spanish territory, to states that were pawns between the North and South prior to the Civil War.

I like this short format. I often need a quick brushing-up on some era in history, preparing to teach, but I can't spare 18 hours to hear some disciplined work that captures deeper detail. Considering I live in former Spanish and then Mexican lands, captured by war from Mexico shortly before California statehood, my knowledge of this was slight. I intend to get more titles in this series.
Yes. The narrator is clear, concise and strong.
Quick moving, to the point and easy to follow. I recommend for anyone wanting to get a clear overview and understanding of the conflicts that went on during this historical development of lands in the U.S. and Mexico.
