Reconnaissance in Sonora

Charles D. Poston’s 1854 Exploration of Mexico and the Gadsden Purchase

The University of Arizona Press
Reconnaissance in Sonora is based on Charles D. Poston’s handwritten report about his 1854 journey from San Francisco to Sonora, Mexico, and his return through the Gadsden Purchase territory of southern Arizona. Along the way, C. Gilbert Storms explores the national debate over a route for a transcontinental railroad and the legends of rich gold and silver mines in 1850s northern Mexico.
