New Mexico

In the 1950s Frank Waters wrote, “For a tiny hinterland community that has never heard of the whistle of a train, [Taos’s] impact has been exceeded by few metropolitan communities.” This book is a substantial new account of this northern New Mexico town where three cultures—Tiwa, Spanish, and Anglo—have shared land, water, and traditions for much of modern history. The book’s twenty-six chapters, written by scholars and writers who have special knowledge of their subjects, deliver Taos’s story in topical increments, beginning with a stirring chapter on the Taos Valley’s highly dynamic geologic history and concluding with surveys of artists and writers who have made Taos famous. rn

New Mexico History

Southwest

© 2022

Early on the morning of August 8, 1881, seven Apache warriors and twelve Navajo raiders made their way on horseback down a piñon-and-ponderosa–shrouded plateau in west central New Mexico Territory to the rock and terrones La Cebolla Ranch house of Domingo and Plácida Romero Gallegos. The raiders killed Domingo Gallegos along with a ranch hand, José María Vargas, carried off Plácida Romero, and rode off into the timbered high country to the east. This is the story of Plácida Romero’s capture, heartbreaking agony, and miraculous escape passed from generation to generation and became the subject of one of the most fascinating and captivating traditional (Hispanic) native ballads in New Mexico history.
