Example text

The people of Santa Cruz are ill prepared in their clothing and housing for these abrupt climatic shifts.  The cold winds take their yearly toll from among the very young, the very old, and the infirm.  All of these uses continue to the present day, although the first, that of a class distinction among lowlanders, has declined in popularity in recent years.  Thus the Camba tends to be a potpourri of highland Indian (Quechua and Aymara), lowland Indian (Guaraní, Guarayo, Chiquitano, and many more), European (primarily from southern Spain), and perhaps African heritage.

Upon his arrival in Potosí, Mendoza was taken prisoner on order from the viceroy and was beheaded a few days later.  San Lorenzo was then moved to the site of the old fort, the Guaranís having been dispersed.  Instead, the Cruceñans located five leagues away, where they remained for seventeen years.  Charcas may have succeeded in moving the city closer to the highlands, but it was incapable of reshaping its independent, intractable inhabitants.  Thus the region continued to conduct its affairs as a semiautonomous state.

The debt was passed from generation to generation and, just as in the highlands, ensured a stable work force.  Runaway peons were hunted down with dogs and men on horseback and were severely punished if caught.  The property in turn was purchased by individual farmers and by agribusiness enterprises which foresaw the coming economic expansion in the lowlands.  Clark added that the revolution had also destroyed the old marketing system, formerly in the hands of the landowners, and that it would take time for the campesino to establish a new marketing network.
