- George Johnson, Santa Fe resident and science writer for The New York Times
"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."
