El Camino Real

DVD - 1991
Rate this:
The royal road, the trail followed by Juan de Oñate in 1598 when he led his troop of Spaniards up from Mexico in search of gold and glory... This program recounts the story of this 1,800 mile trail--only recently rediscovered, its archaeology still only hinted at--and in the process provides the flip-side of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral kind of history: the campsite debris and misshapen mule shoes that give evidence of the hard and dangerous life of the people who traveled here--the Nahuatl-speakers and Pueblo and Spaniards and Mexicans and Anglos who built this country.
