Summary
On Vildosolo's order, Anza opened a route from the presidio del Vado de los Alamos to Sonora. He traversed the Mongollon and Mimbres mtns. It is rich in geographic description, but lacks lengthy remarks on Indians. Its value is the fact that it is an unknown diary of Anza. (J. Grusin) (1976)
