Mariano Vallejo personifies the era of the Californio rancheros. Juan Seguín is a man caught between two worlds. The U.S. expands into territories in the Southwest that had been home to Native Americans and English and Spanish colonies, and as the Mexican-American War strips Mexico of half its territories by 1848.”
