Publisher's promotional blurb says, "From their arrival in Santa Fe in 1853 with the earliest American occupation to the close of Steinfeld's department store in downtown Tucson in the 1980s, the history of the Zeckendorf and Steinfeld families is intertwined with the economic development of the Southwest. In this detailed portrayal, Bettina O'Neil Lyons delves into family documents, archival records, and published sources to chronicle 130 years of mercantile enterprise through the eyes of a remarkable group of men and women who lay the business foundations and set the social tone of Arizona and New Mexico for much of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries."
