As a relatively new resident of New Mexico, I found the Encyclopedia of Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico tremendously helpful as well as entertaining. --Valerie Plame Wilson, author of Fair Game
This fine volume concisely yet quite comprehensively ranges over the region's history, arts, literature, politics, geology, and every other imaginable category of interest. Here is Northern New Mexico in all its sharp beauty, deep weirdness, and irresistible charm. --Hampton Sides, author of Blood and Thunder
The Encyclopedia is authoritative, handsomely designed, and graced with well-chosen illustrations. Recommended! --Marc Simmons, New Mexico historian
