New Mexico!

Creator: Marc Simmons | 2004-05-16

Mindful that the student reading this book is probably learning about New Mexico history for the first time, this volume's abundant illustrations and engaging text will spark and sustain readers' interest.

Publisher: Univ of New Mexico Pr

About this book
Written by the foremost historian on New Mexico, this popular fourth-grade-level textbook introduces the young reader to New Mexico's past and present. When students finish reading this book, they will better understand how different cultures shaped the way we live today as well as know about major events and key people in New Mexico's development. Simmons approaches history as a window to the past. That is, students come to understand they are part of a long flow of human events. This book surveys the experiences of first the Indians, then the Spanish, and finally those people who have come to New Mexico since it has been part of the United States. Supplementing each of the eleven chapters are maps and photographs, about a third of them in color. Reading level: grade 4.

    0 2/5 Robert Davidson - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: New Mexico Off the Beaten Path®: A Guide To Unique Places (Off the Beaten Path Series) (Paperback) I really didn't think much of this book. Especially if you are an outdoors or adventure traveler there is a lot missing here. Lots of wild and scenic areas not covered. And a lot of things I know about from being at Los Alamos years ago that I think could have been covered but weren't. Big print, wordy, but not a lot of detail. There are some neat ideas, and a lot of restaurant info, but I was expecting more in the off the beaten path arena. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 10, 2014

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 27, 2012

    Accurate and helpful

    I used this excellent guide book on several long drives in New Mexico in June 2011. The paperback version is excellent; I have seen, but do not recommend the Kindle version, because the maps were not as useful in that format -- pretty good on the Kindle itself, but hard to use on the iPhone app which I greatly preferred.Formats aside, the content of this book is excellent.

    Truly an enchanted land

    0 5/5 Loves to Knit "BB" (NJ, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Spell of New Mexico (Paperback) I love New Mexico. I actually fell in love with the state before visiting it through Hillerman's mystery novels. Having been to Navajoland, Los Alamos, Espanola, Santa Fe, etc. but not having the ocasion to return, I bought this book to bring me back there as an armchair traveler. The word pictures created by the different authors are so vivid that I feel I am back there when I read them. Hillerman's foreword is an excellent description not only of the book but of his love for New Mexico. Sadly, Hillerman passed away in October of this year. Happily, his works and New Mexico, endure. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 23, 2008

    Information You Can Use

    0 5/5 BeckyInTexas - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Retirement New Mexico (Paperback) This book is formatted with chapters using the same style so whether you are considering relocating to Rio Rancho or Taos, you can quickly locate the information you seek for each city. It provides the reasons each city was selected (recreation, museums, annual events, etc.), then goes into the expected weather conditions, followed by rental/purchasing of homes and lastly medical services. The "whole enchilada".This is an exceptional book and one that we used to plan our vacation touring New Mexico from Las Cruces to Santa Fe. We spent a day driving through the Gila Wilderness from Silver City to Socorro. Drove past the VLA (Very Large Array) radio observatory that was featured in the movie "Contact". Came home with some spectacular photos of this area, and only because we took this book with us. The information was extremely helpful to us, and I'm sure it will be for any reader seriously considering relocating to the "Land of Enchantment". 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 4, 2013

    0 1/5 That Guru - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: New Mexico (Paperback) Riddled with grammatical and punctuation errors, this book does not strike me as an educational book. If you are reading this review, you have Internet access, which means you could go to Wikipedia and get the same information without the filler that makes up most of this book. I had to buy it for a class, and still found it a waste of money, luckily I bought it used for about ten bucks.I live in new mexico and was raised here. I've been taking NM history since for 12 years, and this has been the worst textbook I've had to endure yet. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 11, 2012

    Sorely needs a serious Editor.

    0 3/5 JR - See all my reviews This review is from: New Mexico (Paperback) While I wouldn't go so far as one star, this book does seriously need some editing. Clunky, confusing, and outright incorrect grammar and punctuation riddle the book from start to finish. For instance, sentences in the book just like this one predominately do not include a comma after "for instance." So backwards was grammar that I would occasionally have to reread sentences constructed like this one. Otherwise, I think the content gives a decent overview of New Mexico history and is fine as an introductory book, if you can stand the errors. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 6, 2012

GENIZARO, NEW MEXICO, NATIVE PRIDE TEES

genizaro, native, american, indian, indigenous,
Genízaros and their contemporary descendants were recently recognized as indigenous peoples by the 2007 New Mexico Legislature.Genízaros were Indian slaves who served as house servants, sheepherders, and in other capacities in Spanish, Mexican, and American households in the Southwest, well into the 1880s. By the late 1700s Genízaros and their descendants, often referred to as "Coyotes," comprised nearly one-third of the entire population of New Mexico. -------------------------------------------------------- The term "genízaro" evolved from the word "janissary", which was used to describe the slaves trained to be soldiers of the Ottoman Empire. In the Americas, the category Genízaro eventually was adapted to refer to the Indigenous captives who served as slaves in Spanish, Mexican, and American households. Many of the captives complained of mistreatment by their masters and were thus freed and allowed to settle land grants on the periphery of the Spanish Settlements. In this way they served as a buffer communities for the protection of the Spanish towns from attack by enemy tribes. The settlements of Tome and Belen, just south of Albuquerque for example, were described by Juan Agustin Morfi as follows in 1778: "In all the Spanish towns of New Mexico there exists a class of Indians called genizaros. These are made up of captive Comanches, apaches, etc. who were taken as youngsters and raised among us, and who have married in the province…They are forced to live among the Spaniards, without lands or other means to subsist except the bow and arrow which serves them when they go into the back country to hunt deer for food…They are fine soldiers, very warlike…Expecting the genizaros to work for daily wages is a folly because of the abuses they have experienced, especially from the alcaldes mayores in the past…In two places, Belen and Tome, some sixty families of genizaros have congregated.----------------------------------- Throughout the Spanish and Mexican period Genízaros were settled in several New Mexican villages such as Belen, Tome, Valencia, Carnue, Los Lentes, Socorro, and San Miguel del Vado. Genízaros also lived in Albuquerque, Atrisco, Santa Fe, Chimayo, Taos, Abiquiú and Las Vegas. Most Genizaros were Navajos, Pawnees, Apaches, Kiowa Apaches, Comanches, Utes, and Paiutes who had been sold into slavery at a young age and functioned as servants and sheepherders. Almost all of the more recent Genizaros in fact were of Navajo ancestry, as the source for Indian slaves during the Mexican and early American period (1821-1880) was the Dine Nation, thus they comprised the majority of Indian Slaves during the Mexican and American period. During negotiations with the United States military, Navajo spokesmen complained that over half the tribe were servants in Mexican households. Most did not return to the Navajo nation but remained as the lower classes in the hispanic villages. Today they comprise much of the population of Atrisco, Pajarito, and Los Padillas in the South Valley of Albuquerque, and significant portions of the population of Las Vegas in Eastern New Mexico. In 1821 Mexico gained its independence from Spain and New Mexico became a political state of the Republic of Mexico. The Treaty of Córdoba enacted by Mexico decreed that Native Americans within its borders were citizens of Mexico. Under Spanish rule Genízaros and Pueblo Indians were often treated as second-class citizens. Officially, the Mexican government proclaimed a policy of social equality for all ethnic groups, Genízaros were at least officially considered equals to their Hispanic and Pueblo Indian neighbors. During this period, the term genízaro was officially dropped from church and government documents. In practice however, Mexico was far from egalitarian, and most Genízaro descendants remained at the bottom rung of the economic structure of New Mexico. Economic and Social conditions under Mexico were so bad that in 1837 Genízaros, along with Pueblo Indians and others revolted against the Mexican Government, cut off the head of Albino Perez, (the Mexican Governor) and killed all of the Mexican troops in Santa Fe. They formed a new government and elected Jose Angel Gonzales, a Genízaro of Taos Pueblo and Pawnee ancestry as governor. The revolt was often referred to as the Chimayoso revolt after the infamous community of Chimayo, in Northern New Mexico, which was home to Jose Angel Gonzales and many other mixed blood Indians. It was one of many revolts against the Mexican government by Indigenous peoples during this period, including the Mayan revolt in the south.
