In 1610, while the pilgrims were tip-toeing onto the rocky New England coast, Spanish adventurers and Catholic priests were riding their mules north from Santa Fe in a quest for gold and baptisms.
One of the last and largest Spanish settlements was located on what is now the Ute Indian Reservation at Rock Creek. According to Ute legends, the biggest slaughter of white men by Indians didn't occur at the Little Big Horn, but at Rock Creek, wherein 1840 nearly one thousand Spaniards were slaughtered by Indians, ending once and for all the era of the Spanish gold seekers.
This story is about that last great battle, told through the eyes of Utah's favorite writer of historical fiction, Lee Nelson.
