Slavers arrive on horseback. They shoot their guns and capture unarmed farmers. They even shackle children. Abikanile's mother has told her so. Until now, the villagers of Yao had always felt safe. Lately, however, whispers and stories have found their way to them about nearby villages that have been seized.

Under Spanish rule, Villa de Branciforte grew from a compact little village on the East Bank of the San Lorenzo River into an area of huge estates which spread forty miles along the California coast. When American days came, it lapsed into a small community under Santa Cruz County. Here are gathered short essays on its rise and fall: first families; land grants (including Bolsa del Pajaro, Las Corralitos, Canada Verde Salsipuedes, and San Andres); cattle brands; revolutionaries and outlaws; and the arrival of English speakers.

Desertion was apparently caused much less by population decline in the later
Middle Ages than by subsequent enclosures for pasture ; the villages that
vanished were usually small ; areas of woodland and fenland were seldom
affected .
