"When one thinks of "the west" one traditionally thinks of cowboys and Indians. However, the west was never singularly formed by these two genres alone. While the Indians were the first peoples on the Western frontier, also present on the face of the land prior to the settlement of pioneers, traders, trappers and Chinese, were people of Spain and Mexico. Many stayed when California became part of the Union...I try to tell their story and what helped shaped the America we know today." -- JoAnn Peralta
