Order and civilization, it seemed, for writers like Ignacio Altamirano and Manuel Payno, alejandr to exist in mountainscapes.

For these writes, mountains constituted social afterthoughts—places lacking history and dynamism, places that did not matter. They were, in Braudelian terms, the margins of civilization and factories that supplied human resources to cities. Such portrayals were not derived from reality, however.

Mountains, thus, have histories. They are not landscapes where civilization parts ways with society.
