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.

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."

    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.

    3/5 Just Jon (New Mexico) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: New Mexico (Paperback) I tend to agree with some of the other reviewers saying this book badly needed some editing.I had to pick it up for my New Mexico History course. It had a lot of things in it that were fine. But there were also times where it felt like things were being stretched in a way that wasn't particularly substantive. Like they wrote a first draft of it and noticed, "Huh, my book's not even 200 pages long. Well, that's not a very respectable book. Let's pad it out with some fluff." And in the end, they arrived at a pretty paltry 210-ish pages that was padded out.I still give it 3 stars because it gave me a lot of the info I needed, even if I had to wade past fluff and filler to find it. Also, it was at least reasonably priced compared to most books I've had to buy for college. I mean, it would've been so much worse if I'd had to pay more for it.

    Needs a proofreader and a diet

    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.
