Summary
Find the spirit of the West still untamed in rural New Mexico. Visit eleven towns across this large state and meet the pillars and villains of the past, along with storytellers and citizens of today. Hear about sensational gunfights, landgrant wars, and the booms and busts of these historical communities. See the magnificent landscape of New Mexico and the architectural ruins of its native populations. Witness the mingling of native and European cultures and their influences on building, art, and cuisine. Experience the renowned hospitality of New Mexican country folk and adjust to the poco tiempre (slow Pace) of this region. You'll be enlightened and enchanted as you travel the trails of history and stumble upon the treasures of today, including: The great kivas of the Aztec ruins and Anasazi culture-- Mormon origins and influences of Ramah-- Saints and kachinas juxtapositioned in Zuñi's Old Mission-- The origins of the town, Truth or Consequences-- The place where Billy the Kid lived, was captured, and is buried-- A pancake recipe from Casa de Patron and a thermal water analysis from hot springs-- Panoramic murals and Navajo chants in Fort Sumner -- Back cover
