New Mexico by Marc Simmons
Book DescriptionFor all who love New Mexico, and for those who aspire to know the state, this book is a graceful and compelling summary of what has made the Land of Enchantment its distinctive self. Originally published in 1977 to commemorate the bicentennial of American Independence, New Mexico is now available for the first time in a quality paperback edition with a new introduction by the author. In writing this book, Marc Simmons sets out to arrive at an understanding of the states character. His is an interpretive, sensitive, individualeven personalaccount. He shows that across the centuries the collision and mingling of cultures dominates New Mexicos history. Out of this complex interplay of human and natural forces he selects his examples of Pueblo life ways, Spanish domination, and Anglo control to make immediate and memorable the states rich history.
