A history of land conflicts and legal cultures in the way the West was won. The story takes place in New Mexico, as it evolved from a Mexican colony to a U.S., territory. The author shows how ideas about land, ownership, and rights clashed in this transition from a legal culture based on pre-industrial norms to the modern market system of the U.S.
