Incorporating information from Spanish-language sources previously unavailable to English audiences, Rausch (history, U. of Massachusetts) traces the history of the Colombian city of Villavicencio, portraying the evolution of the town from isolated outpost separated from the capital city of Bogota by the peaks of the Andes to a bustling metropolis and principal urban center of the Colombian tropical plains as a microcosm of the development of Colombia's eastern frontier.
