In the late sixteenth century, Spanish explorers described encounters with North American people they called 'Jumanos.' This book proposes that they were indeed a distinctive tribe, their wide travel pattern linked over well-established itineraries.

"This important book accomplishes many things... It will reshape perceptions of the history of the Southern Plains and the Spanish borderlands. The Jumanos have been the subject of complete misunderstanding by anthropologists, ethnologists, and historians alike, and Hickerson has gone a great distance to clarify just who the Jumanos were, what happened to them, and why they were important... The Jumanos is excellent ethnohistory." Journal of American History
