Summary
In this engaging narrative, Carole Larson re-creates the frontier era in southeastern and south central New Mexico. Her deft telling of the lives of major figures in that region is sure to delight readers seeking a general history of the this period and place. To the familiar story of lawlessness and violence on the frontier, Larson adds a fresh viewpoint marked by sensitivity to various cultures and to the nature of the conquest - both of land and people - in this region. The story of the territorial period (1850-1912) and early statehood years is re-created through the lives of thirteen individuals. Through their eyes we, too, see the passing of the Old West, in which cattle barons and gunfighters dominated the scene. In their place emerge new forces promoting community, commerce, and civil order - a world in which business acumen determine success
