of Conquistador Pedro de Mérida:

I wish to acknowledge those who have helped make this site possible.

Eric Weber (website | designed and developed this site, and Nicholas Ward designed the companion site prior to this one.

Alex Currie, my grandson, gave me the idea to provide Google Earth tours for each chapter. At first, I had no idea what an Earth tour was. Once I learned more, I recognized their importance for the book and the site. He also asked me to write the book!
