First edition. "Five years' residency in the mountains of southwestern Chihuahua between 1882 and 1887 provided the author with the opportunity to observe the dwellers of that area to a degree of completeness. As Flippin compared the mining region with the rest of Mexico, he saw more immorality and vice, less regard for law and order, and greater reluctance to change. The poverty of the region Flippin felt determined that it would be so socially and culturally retarded. Consequently, he conjectured that despite the abundance of natural resources modern ways would be a long time coming to this area." -- Cole. AMERICAN TRAVELERS TO MEXICO. #148.
