From Our Editors

'The exploration of the interrelationships among soldiers, civilian settlers, missionaries, and Indians in the San Antonio area is of special significance. This provides a refreshing approach for the study of early borderlands history, transcending the tendency among some historians to study these groups in isolation.'
