Bernardo Miera y Pacheco (1713-1785) drew the first maps of New Mexico and the Four Corners region, and many art historians consider Miera the first New Mexico santero. The full extent of his art, life, and works are the focus of this long-anticipated book that discusses Miera’s remarkable contributions as artist, explorer, and cartographer.
