Approaches is a frustrating book in a way, since it goes into just enough detail about people and events to make you want to know more. But it is a decent introduction to its subject, with footnotes by the translator helping to fill in some of the background knowledge non-Spanish readers may lack. The only major problem is that the maps provided don't cover all the places mentioned in the text, forcing readers unfamiliar with Spanish geography to consult an atlas.
