MARTÍNEZ, TOMÁS, ENRIQUE LAMADRID Y JACK LOEFFLER. EL CAMINO REAL DE TIERRA ADENTRO. COLEGIO DE POSTGRADUADOS Y MUNDI-PRENSA MÉXICO, S.A. DE C.V., 2009. The study of any region is imbued with the need to investigate its historical background. The north of México and the south of the United States make up the area that Tomás Martínez Saldaña and collaborators have set out to describe, analyze and research, to show how historical events have transformed the region since the Conquest and until today. In a journey through cities and towns whose origin date from the Colonial period, in the territories where the current states of México, Querétaro, Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, Jalisco San Luis Potosí, Zacatecas, Durango, Chihuahua, and the US territory of Santa Fe in New Mexico, are found, the Camino Real de Tierra Adentro becomes an active participant and important in the construction of modern México. It was a commercial route that united Mexico City with Santa Fe, so that its extension corresponds to the limit of Mesoamerica; the territory that was occupied by arid American cultures along some two thousand five hundred kilometers, between the years of 1590 and 1850.
