New Mexico, An Interpretive History

Creator: Marc Simmons | History - 1977

Reprint. Originally published: New York: Norton, c1977. The memorable story of New Mexico's history.

Publisher: UNM Press

About this book
For 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 Mexicois 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 state's character. His is an interpretive, sensitive, individual--even personal--account. He shows that across the centuries the collision and mingling of cultures dominates New Mexico's 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 state's rich history.

Publisher: Sunstone Press

About this book
The vital history of New Mexico and Arizona during the formative years between the American Occupation and the coming of the railroad has been compressed by the author into one volume with hundreds of footnotes and many profiles that make this book of vital importance to teachers, students, and researchers. The book is broken into four parts: "General Kearny Comes to Santa Fe," "The Confederates Invade New Mexico," "Carleton's California Column," and "The Long Walk." Many famous men walk and talk through these pages, including Kearny, Doniphan, Baylor, Canby, Carleton, Sibley, and a host of others. In addition, the story of the impact of the Civil War in New Mexico on the Indians, and the tragic results, is told here in detail for the first time. Long out of print, the book is available once again with a new foreword by Marc Simmons and preface by Michael L. Keleher, William A. Keleher's son. It also includes brief biographies of Ernest L. Blumenschein and Oscar E. Berninghaus who provided the original illustrations. William A. Keleher (1886-1972) observed first hand the changing circumstances of people and places of New Mexico. Born in Lawrence, Kansas, he arrived in Albuquerque two years later, with his parents and two older brothers. The older brothers died of diphtheria within a few weeks of their arrival. As an adult, Keleher worked for more than four years as a Morse operator, and later as a reporter on New Mexico newspapers. Bidding a reluctant farewell to newspaper work, Keleher studied law at Washington & Lee University and started practicing law in 1915. He was recognized as a successful attorney, being honored by the New Mexico State Bar as one of the outstanding Attorneys of the Twentieth Century. One quickly observes from his writings, and writings about him, that he lived a fruitful and exemplary life. His knowledge and understanding of humankind is evidenced by this quote attributed to Sir Thomas Browne, 1686, and printed after the title page in "Turmoil in New Mexico" "The iniquity of oblivion scattereth her poppy and deals with the memory of men without distinction to merit and perpetuity.who knows whether the best of men be known, or whether there be not more remarkable men forgot, than any that stand remembered in the known account of time."

About this book
New Mexico is an angler's delight. It has more than a thousand miles of fishable creeks, streams, and rivers and almost a quarter-million surface acres of lakes and reservoirs.

From the state's two best-known fishing areas--the San Juan river and Elephant Butte Reservoir--to all of the waters associated with the state's ten drainages, this book provides detailed information for each site on location, size, depth, shoreline description, fish species, suggested angling techniques, seasonal fishing reports, road access, camping and boating facilities, and handicapped accessibility. This book is sure to become indispensable to two types of anglers: beginners, young and old, who want to take up the sport, and veterans--including newcomers to the state--who seek up-to-date information on all species of coldwater and warm water sport fish in New Mexico.

    Disappointing

    2/5 Maxibleu (Indiana, PA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: New Mexico: Portrait of a State (Portrait of a Place) (Hardcover) I purchased this book because I love New Mexico's geography, natural beauty, people, history, etc. While the photos in this book are beautiful, I feel they are limited in scope, and the editing of the book seems "scattered." New Mexico is a large state with glorious landscapes, but the author tends to dwell on a few limited areas (i.e., Chaco Canyon). The photographs are randomly placed throughout the book, with no real cohesiveness -- if one is going to do a pictorial on specific areas, I would like to have seen those photos grouped together in a logical order. I wish I could have liked this book; unfortunately, I found myself asking, "what about ..., and where's the photo of ..., etc.?

    4/5 Mister Bones (Northern California, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: New Mexico: Portrait of a State (Portrait of a Place) (Hardcover) This book has at least one photo of each of my favorite things about New Mexico.The photos don't intrude on your own experience of the beauty.It's a great, nicely priced book for a souvenir or to give to a friend with whom you want to share your enchantment.I thought it was better than some of the other, more expensive New Mexico coffee table books I looked at while I was there.Don't expect a hefty book: it's relatively small in size and weight compared to similar photography books.

    A great guide to the less known roads

    5/5 R Williams (United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Scenic Driving New Mexico (Paperback) I am so glad I received this book as a gift a few years ago. I have taken about 85% of the drives described and I never would have discovered many of these drives and I certainly would not have enjoyed them so much without this book. I give this book as a gift to friends now all the time. It is a great book and has all the appropriate details to appreciate sites and views along the way. Don't live in or near New Mexico or travel through New Mexico without this book if you like scenery and touring and also an occasional dirt road virtually to yourself.

This review is from: Totally Bamboo State Cutting & Serving Board, Alaska, 100% Bamboo Board for Cooking and Entertaining (Kitchen) I ordered two cutting boards - one Texas and one Alaska. The Alaska board is missing South East Alaska, but otherwise they are both great. I am from Texas and my husband is from Alaska so I hung them up in our kitchen together.

    5/5 hammieo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo State Cutting & Serving Board, Pennsylvania, 100% Bamboo Board for Cooking and Entertaining (Kitchen) Good cutting board, although I doubt very much we'll use it as a "cutting" board. Will likely end up being a hot plate holder for the table or hanging in the kitchen as an item of display. It's nicely built, comes with a nice leather strap - if you want to hang it up. I wouldn't recommend dishwashing this - I've had other cutting boards that are not single pieces of wood and with the heat from the dishwasher, they eventually come apart (glue melting or eaten by dish soap). Obviously with this being bamboo, it's not a single piece -- that would be a huge stalk!! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 21, 2016

    Bright illustrations but locations featured are lacking

    4/5 AngieMarie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Good Night Ohio (Good Night Our World) (Board book) We purchased this book for my daughter as well as the Good Night Maine version of the book. I am from Ohio and my husband from Maine, so we wanted to teach our daughter about each state. The Maine book was wonderful and very reflective of the state as a whole. It touched on all the key points and nicer, lesser know points of the state. The Ohio book, on the other hand, was disappointing. While the illustrations are nice and bright (great for a 1-year-old), the locations featured left something to be desired. It seems as if the selections were chosen by someone who had never very actually been to the state and just googled it...which may be the case. Of course, having lived here the majority of my life, I may be a bit biased. Overall, it's a great book to teach children about where they are from, their parents are from or where relatives may live.

    Great book - wonderful series

    4/5 WA Product Tester - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Good Night New Mexico (Good Night Our World) (Board book) These books have become a great series for our kids. We have books in the series for each state that we've lived in, and anytime we go on a family trip we get the book before we go. In preparation for a trip to Albuquerque this weekend, we got this book and read it tonight. It highlights some things that I didn't know were in the state and we can look forward to when we go on our upcoming trip. Definitely recommend both this book and the series.

    Good concept but neglects important kid locations

    I bought this book to supplement a Pre-Kindergarten unit on Austin. Generally, I like the layout and concept of the book. However, I wish the illustrations were a little less cartoonish and I am somewhat disappointed with the selection of locations. As an Austinite, parent and teacher, the places I feel are most relevant to kids are the ones that are unique to Austin and that kids can experience with their parents. I was especially disappointed to see that businesses like iFly and the Austin Aquarium showed up in the book... these locations are relatively new to Austin, are not publicly funded and are not unique to our city. Also, iFly is for older kids and this book is clearly for young children - the Zilker Zephyr or Dino Pit - two places preschoolers can identify with would have been much better choices.Must-haves included in the book: The Wildflower Center, Barton Springs, The Austin Zoo, Bats at Congress BridgeMust-haves NOT in the book: Zilker Zephyr... 3/5 MaxAndMe - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

If you like flavored coffee, or if you doctor your java with cream and sugar, you'll probably like this right off the bat. If you like your coffee to taste like coffee, and you drink it straight, hot and black, you might have to acquire a taste for this over time. The first couple of pots I drank left me with a feeling in my mouth like I was drinking from a dusty cup. I stayed with it. though, and now appreciate the taste of the nuts and/or the flavoring, but only for my second or third pot of the day. As you might be able to tell, I drink a lot of coffee.

    Awesome coffee!

    This coffee is really good. I think there is a sweet flavoring added to coat the beans but you can't taste it on brewing which is good. I purchased the medium roast. There are typically two types of beans...Arabica and Robusta. NM Pinon Coffee uses Arabica Beans a better quality than the Robusta. They roast the beans with pinon nuts from a small variefty of pine tree that grows in the Southwestern USA, primarily in New Mexico. The pinon nut was a staple for Native American tribes in that region. I've tasted roasted pinon nuts in New Mexico and they are great. The nut resembles a small coffee bean but when the thin hard shell (The shell is similar to an M&M but shaped like a Jelly Belly) is cracked open a soft tasty easy to eat nut is inside. I paid only $20 for two pounds of New Mexico Pinon Coffee on Amazon. In my opinion that is one of the best deals going. The quality far exceeds the price.

    Best of the best...

    5/5 Rick - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: New Mexico Piñon Coffee Traditional Piñon, Whole Bean, 2lb (Misc.) I gave this coffee 5 stars because this is simply the best tasting coffee I've ever tasted!! I initially ordered this when I was in Afghanistan, since I became a daily coffee drinker and it became part of my ritual. For this same reason, I got to try many different kinds of coffee from friends and family members who would send us coffee out there.Needless to say, this was the best out of all of them by far. I have only seen this sold in New Mexico but it is quite pricier if you buy it at a store, compared to buying it through Amazon. I have tried a few of the "flavored" variations and they are also worth mentioning. If you are looking for a nice, smooth coffee... with a very nice and mellow after-taste, then this is the coffee for you. Enjoy!!
