About this book
Each of the 52 volumes in the World Almanac Library of the States is filled with the most up-to-date information, including the latest Census results. Full-color photos bring to life the story of each state, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and other outlying areas. In addition to an in-depth factual profile of each state in the form of a state Almanac, each book offers fascinating and lively discussions of the state's history, people, geography, government, economy, culture, and lifestyles. Each title also includes a section on notable people, a calendar of events, and enough primary source documents, time lines, maps, and other tools to make this unquestionably the best young adult reference material on the United States of America available anywhere.

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

    A broad perspective...

    David Muench has traveled the miles to present the reader with a broad perspective of the Land of Enchantment. He has been in the "boot heel," traveled north to Ship Rock, over to the snowy peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and down, literally and figuratively, into the Carlsbad Caverns. He has also photographed the many places in between, in the various seasons, and obviously visited several places in more than one season. The only area that he eschews is the llano, the high plains that form the eastern third of the state, though there is one picture of Fort Union, in Mora County. True, unless you are in search of real "elbow-room," and/or wind, most people skip the llano. And save for two solo skiers, Muench has cropped out all the two million people who live in New Mexico. So, it is, very much, a book dedicated to the landscape and topography of the state, as well as its buildings and monuments.No question, New Mexico is photogenic. A number of quality... 5/5 John P.

    Disappointing

    0 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.? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 14, 2011

    New Mexico, The 49th State ???

    0 5/5 tree "tree" (Southern US) - See all my reviews This review is from: New Mexico: Portrait of a State (Portrait of a Place) (Hardcover) I haven't seen the book yet, but I know I am a fan of tne Muenchs, esp. the father Josef. I just had to comment on the initial description of this book on Amazon where it says that NM is the "49th state." For some reason, I've been under the impression that Hawaii & Alaska came into the Union in 1959 as the 49th & 50th states.

    I wish I didn't like these Delorme Atlas volumes so much

    I have several of these of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. Duplicates of each... one in the house for planning and study, one in the truck. Occasionally I rotate them so they don't wear out too quickly.If you spend a lot of time in the back country these maps are the best alternative, from my point of view. It's true the maps don't have labels on the back country cow trails another reviewer complained of. The fact is, neither do the roads. But it's often helpful when you come to the fork in a dirt two-track and they both wander off a few degrees off North, to be able to crack open the Delorme and discover the one on the left plays out just over that hill over there at a windmill. There's no excuse for needing labels these days. A compass and Delorme will allow you to locate yourself in most instances.However, even the back woods purist ought to own a GPS. I've been wandering around the back woods longer than most readers of this have been alive. I rarely get lost,... 5/5 Jack Purcell (Placitas, NM USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: New Mexico Atlas & Gazetteer (Map) I have several of these of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico.

    My favorite New Mexico map

    This map is fairly detailed, and well organized. Its back cover divides the state into squares, and each square equals a page. See the number on the square, and turn to that page. It's that easy. (It also has a decent index.)There are a lot of maps of New Mexico, and anyone really obsessed with exploring its backroads should get copies of the USGS five-minute maps for the areas they're particularly interested in. But, for a good, general, usually adequate map of the entire state, this is by far the best map to buy. It's got many dirt roads, ranch roads, and little known landmarks. I've spent years of driving and exploring with my brother and my friends, stopping frequently to crack this map open and find out where on earth we were.Occasionally, if something wasn't in this map, it was in the Benchmark "New Mexico Road and Recreation Atlas," but of the two this one's always been the more helpful.

    REVISED EDITION IS EVEN BETTER

    Jack Purcell is pretty thorough in his review. As for the nitpickers, if they really want to get names and numbers of backroads, they can contact the forest service and BLM, as well as the park service, who publishes maps of logging roads, and other limited use roadways. At 1:250,000, who could expect a name or number tag anyway of off-the-beaten trail access roads anyway?What's nice about the new edition is De Lorme has added graphics to note relief, rather than topo lines found on previous editions (Perhaps due to competition from Benchmark Maps). I like the DeLorme Maps because they tend to be more detailed using a smaller resolution overall than other book maps (1:150,000 up to 1:250,000), and if one needs the detail offered in a 7.5 minute map, they have only to visit TopoZone.com to get really close, after locating the general area conditions on a DeLorme Map.A great overall set to obtain, at the very least, get your state and every state that surrounds your own,... 5/5 DRYWASHER-BILL (LAS VEGAS, NEVADA) - See all my reviews This review is from: New Mexico Atlas & Gazetteer (Map) Jack Purcell is pretty thorough in his review.

    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.
