The next Los Alamos Historical Society Lecture will feature “Globetrotters, Border Crossers, and the Tangled Tales of U.S.-Mexico Borderlands History,” by Dr. Samuel Truett.
The lecture begins at 7:30 p.m. March 11 at Fuller Lodge.
Set sail with two enigmatic globetrotters for the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. One was a former English adventurer who fought pirates and sailed opium clippers. The other was a Cossack warrior who became an Indian fighter, border guard and spy. Their stories connect the U.S.-Mexico borderlands to world history in unexpected ways.
Truett is an associate professor in the Department of History at the University of New Mexico, where he teaches borderlands history. He is author of several publications, including “Fugitive Landscapes: The Forgotten History of the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands,” selected as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2007 by Choice Magazine. He was selected “Top Young Historian” by HNN History News Network in April 2008.
