A Topical History
Trim: 7" x 10"
Illustrations: 36 black and white images
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

A Woman's Captivity & Redemption
Trim: 7" x 10"
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, JosÃ© Mará Vargas, carried off Plácida Romero, and rode off into the timbered high country to the east. This is the story of Plácida Romeroâ€™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.

Few people have ventured into the remote, uninhabited badlands of the Navajo Reservation in northwest New Mexico known, by the artist who made it famous, as the Black Place. During the 1930s and 1940s Georgia O’Keeffe and her friend Maria Chabot braved the harsh conditions of baking heat in summer, bitter cold in winter, and ferocious winds to make many camping trips to the area that inspired one of the great outpourings of creativity in O’Keeffe’s artistic life. Photographer Walter W. Nelson, who shares with O’Keeffe what writer Douglas Preston calls "a great affinity for geology" went in search of the Black Place twenty years ago and has returned over thirty times to photograph it, first in black-and-white with a large format 8 x1 0 camera and over the last five years, in color with a digital camera. The two seasons of his title refer to the fact that in this region virtually devoid of vegetation, only the presence of snow visually distinguishes the landscape from the non-winter months. Inexhaustible in scope, with geological complexity dating back some 66 million years, the Black Place must be patiently experienced for its mystery and infinitude and deep secrets of time.
