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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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. You should get a copy, and then, you should get out... 5/5 Mike Smith (Albuquerque, NM) - See all my reviews This review is from: New Mexico Atlas & Gazetteer (Map) This map is fairly detailed, and well organized.

    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

    Great retirement book----if your in to New Mexico

    0 5/5 Jim L. Keels - See all my reviews, June 6, 2012

    A Thoughtful Introduction for Relocators

    This little text is a nicely done introduction to the state of New Mexico for anyone considering relocating to the Land if Enchantment to spend their retirement years. Each city and town receives at least a careful, reasonably up-to-date discussion of its pros and cons as a place for persons to live or even work part-time. Certainly no-one would want to make this book their only resource but Burbank offers numerous other sources for many of the major locales which compliment the existing text. RNM is well-written and worth the time to study carefully. If there is a "problem'" it is that no book of this kind can possibly be kept absolutely current. Any study of this nature more than a year or two old runs the risk of becoming out-of-date and, indeed, there are some facts here which need updating. Still, anyone who is seriously considering New Mexico as a place to live in their so-called "golden years" would be well-advised to get a copy of the latest edition of... 4/5 M.
