4 BUTTERFIELD, MIKE. New Mexico's High Peaks: A Photographic Celebration.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
This book should be required reading for all who believe New Mexico is nothing but plains, mesas, and cacti. It proves in spectacular fashion that the Land of Enchantment is very much a mountain state, with at least sixty summits 12,000 feet or higher. Photographer-author Mike Butterfield has spent forty years hiking these high mountains, and his magnificent images are paired here with the chronicle of his adventures. To help readers become acquainted with his beloved mountains, Butterfield divides the high peaks of northern New Mexico into their geographical regions, each with its unique geology, history, and plants and animals. Butterfield's primary focus, however, remains on the peaks, which have attracted generations of hikers, backpackers, climbers, hunters, and horsemen. To assist those visitors, Butterfield covers not only named summits but also the many individual points exceeding 12,000 feet. He includes valuable information about important trails and trailheads, access points, and, for car-bound visitors, places from which the mountains can be most favorably viewed. Mike Butterfield is a professional photographer and the coauthor of Mike Butterfield's Guide to the Mountains of New Mexico. He lives in Albuquerque. 11 x 8.5 in. 188 pages 134 color photos, 13 maps, 3 tables.

University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: . s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Extending from the spillway below Cochiti Dam, about fifty miles north of Albuquerque, to the headwaters of Elephant Butte Reservoir, near Truth or Consequences in the southern portion of New Mexico, the Middle Rio Grande Bosque is more than a cottonwood woodland or forest. It is a complete riverside ecosystem, among the more important in the world's arid regions. Every day hundreds of visitors to the bosque encounter flora and fauna they can't identify. Researchers and municipal, county, state, and federal resource agency personnel concerned with the bosque's management need to know how plants and animals are linked to their habitats. With descriptions of more than seven hundred plants and animals illustrated with color photographs, this authoritative guide is the first of its kind for the Middle Rio Grande Bosque and is an invaluable resource for land managers, teachers, students, eco-buffs, and nature enthusiasts. It also reveals the important role the bosque plays in New Mexico's natural heritage. 832 color illustrations. Jean-Luc E. Cartron (M.D., 1991, University of Paris Val de Marne, France; and Ph.D., 1995, Biology, University of New Mexico) is a research assistant professor at UNM and the director of the Drylands Institute New Mexico office. He has written numerous articles on raptor ecology and is the editor of Biodiversity, Ecosystems, and Conservation in Northern Mexico. David C.

6 COLLIER, JR., JOHN; DELANO, JACK & LEE, RUSSELL (PHOTOGRAPHS). Far From Main Street: Three Photographers In Depression-era New Mexico.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
New Deal agencies hired some of the country's most talented photographers of the twentieth century to document the lives of rural Americans during the Great Depression and its aftermath. This moving record bears witness to the struggling people in northern New Mexico determined to succeed through the lenses of Russell Lee, John Collier, Jr., and Jack Delano Jack Delano's "photographic memories" include the struggles of migrant workers and the home front contributions of ethnic and minority groups living in the shadow of the Depression. Employed as a photographer by the Historical Section of the Farm Security Administration (FSA), Delano later settled in Puerto Rico, where he has been a constant participant in the island's cultural life. 9 x 12 in. 88 pages 150 duotones. Russell Lee is widely acclaimed as one of the most outstanding documentary photographers of the twentieth century. His images of American life during the Great Depression, created for the Farm Security Administration between 1936 and 1942, hold a preeminent place in one of history's best-known and most useful photographic collections. This famous body of work demonstrates Lee's extraordinary ability to reveal the humanity of his subjects and to become a part of the communities he photographed. It also displays Lee's superior technical ability--his legendary skill in using a flash enabled Lee to create some of the finest candids in the history of photography. John Collier, Jr. (1913-1992) was an American anthropologist and an early leader in the fields of visual anthropology and applied anthropology. His emphasis on analysis and use of still photographs in ethnography led him to significant contributions in other subfields of anthropology, especially the applied anthropology of education. His book, Visual Anthropology: Photography as a Research Method (1967) is one of the earliest textbooks in the field and is still in use today. He is also notable as someone who overcame significant learning and hearing impairments to succeed on a larger stage. "A work of transcendent grace and beauty." -- The New York Times Book Review

University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: . s Spiral Bound Brand New Book. 
The most complete and up-to-date resource for Sandia Mountain hikers, this guide presents information on fifty-seven trails covering a total distance of about 175 miles. Each trail entry begins with the length of the trail, the elevation gain, and degree of difficulty. The author, who has hiked each trail many times, gives directions to the trailhead and descriptions of trail terrain, scenic viewpoints, vegetation, and neighboring trails for making nice loop hikes.

10 DUNMIRE, WILLIAM W. New Mexico's Spanish Livestock Heritage: Four Centuries Of Animals, Land, And People.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The Spanish introduced European livestock to the New World—not only cattle and horses but also mules, donkeys, sheep, goats, pigs, and poultry. This survey of the history of domestic livestock in New Mexico is the first of its kind, going beyond cowboy culture to examine the ways Spaniards, Indians, and Anglos used animals and how those uses affected the region's landscapes and cultures. The author has mined the observations of travelers and the work of earlier historians and other scholars to provide a history of livestock in New Mexico from 1540 to the present. He includes general background on animal domestication in the Old World and the New during pre-Columbian times, along with specific information on each of the six livestock species brought to New Mexico by the early Spanish colonists. Separate chapters deal with the impacts of Spanish livestock on the state's native population and upon the land itself, and a final chapter explains New Mexico's place in the larger American livestock scene. William W. Dunmire is a retired National Park Service naturalist and is currently an associate in biology at the University of New Mexico and a research associate at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. "Life and environment in New Mexico have been indelibly altered by livestock. Dunmire's book is the first to offer a history of the use and effects of the full range of domesticated animals in the state. It raises many important questions and gives us a jumping-off place for exploring them." -- Richard Flint, author of No Settlement, No Conquest: A History of the Coronado Entrada "Just as he opened new vistas with his award-winning Gardens of New Spain, Bill Dunmire has written a groundbreaking new book on the history of livestock in New Mexico. Dunmire's books remind us that the fates of plants, animals, and humans are continually intertwined on this small, vulnerable corner of planet earth." -- Richard A. Melzer, author of New Mexico: Celebrating the Land of Enchantment

14 GOIN, PETER & LIPPARD, LUCY R. Time And Time Again: History, Rephotography, And Preservation In The Chaco World.
Museum of New Mexico Press, Santa Fe: 2013. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
This book is a visual exploration of Ancestral Pueblo sites at Chacon Canyon and its extension throughout the San Juan Basin into the northern reaches of Mesa Verde. Pairing early photographs of the Chacoan world with contemporary rephotographic images, Goin sets out to examine how "ruins," which J. B. Jackson famously wrote bring a sense of time scale to the landscape, are constructed and interpreted according to cultural ideas held by archaeologists and preservationists bound by the limits of their disciplines and sense of cultural ownership. The book asks, "why save things, and what should be saved"? Lucy R. Lippard's detailed text draws on the vast literature and ongoing research on the so-called "mysteries" of Chaco. Conflicting narratives stem from the differing ways time is measured in different cultures - astronomically, historically, and environmentally. The stories that have come down from the many Native nations that are heirs to the Chaco and Mesa Verde worlds (Including Keres, Zuni, Tewa, Navajo and Ute) are juxtaposed, like the photographs, against the "scientific" views of those who control the sites and the literature today, raising the question of cultural ownership. Whose story is it to tell? To whom does the past belong? Time and Time Again offers a kaleidoscopic view, considering the multiple truths that are known and can be hypothesized about Chaco and Mesa Verde. The juxtaposition of historical photographs with contemporary images attempts to go beneath the surface to investigate the role of time in archaeological sites, especially those that have been "preserved" and reconstructed. The idea that two photographs can stop time without considering the intervening years is intriguing. The photographs—primarily from the period of the late 19th century through the 1930s—and rephotographed by Peter Goin provide two arbitrary points, paralleling the equally arbitrary choices made by historic preservationists working on ancient sites. The rephotograph shows what has happened but gives no hint about the interim or causes. Photography and tourism add another layer to the disjunctions between what is known and what is told. Another factor is an inquiry into how we measure time in these places - astronomically, historically, as a narrative of natural change, and through stories told by generations of Hopi, Navajo, Keres and Tewa Pueblo people, who are variously heirs to the sites and the cultures. There is also the question of cultural "ownership." Whose story is it to tell? Whose ancestors built these structures and lived there? To whom does the past belong?

17 HARMER, TOM. A Walk Around The Horizon: Discovering New Mexico's Mountains Of The Four Directions.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: 2013. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
North of Santa Fe, the New Mexico landscape is framed by four high mountains. Although they are sacred to the Tewa Pueblo Indians, the four peaks are in different bureaucratic and cultural zones, which means that each peak attracts visitors but few non-Indian travelers visit more than one of the mountains. Tom Harmer's chronicle of climbing all four of these mountains in one summer—Sandia to the south, Chicoma to the west, Canjilon to the north, and Truchas to the east—offers a unique view of a montane forest unlike any in the world, where mountain, plain, and desert biota converge. Outdoor enthusiasts and armchair travelers alike will relish Harmer's precise account of his backpacking adventure, in which this sixty-two-year-old Anglo discovers the realities of complicated cultural legacies, ecological challenges, and human foibles counterpoised against his own strengths and frailties. Tom Harmer is also the author of Going Native and What I've Always Known: Living in Full Awareness of the Earth. He lives in northern New Mexico. "This is a book of high adventure that lures the reader into a profound awareness of the flow of Nature. It is a superb bioregional handbook that reveals the natural history and sacred quality of the homeland of El Norte. And it is a powerful personal reflection that compels us to defend this mythic landscape from those who would turn homeland into money." -- Jack Loeffler, author of Thinking Like a Watershed

20 HOLTBY, DAVID V. Forty-seventh Star: New Mexico's Struggle For Statehood.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2012. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
New Mexico was ceded to the United States in 1848, at the end of the war with Mexico, but not until 1912 did President William Howard Taft sign the proclamation that promoted New Mexico from territory to state. Why did New Mexico's push for statehood last sixty-four years? Conventional wisdom has it that racism was solely to blame. But this fresh look at the history finds a more complex set of obstacles, tied primarily to self-serving politicians. Forty-Seventh Star, published in New Mexico's centennial year, is the first book on its quest for statehood in more than forty years. David V. Holtby closely examines the final stretch of New Mexico's tortuous road to statehood, beginning in the 1890s. His deeply researched narrative juxtaposes events in Washington, D.C., and in the territory to present the repeated collisions between New Mexicans seeking to control their destiny and politicians opposing them, including Republican U.S. senators Albert J. Beveridge of Indiana and Nelson W. Aldrich of Rhode Island. Holtby places the quest for statehood in national perspective while examining the territory's political, economic, and social development. He shows how a few powerful men brewed a concoction of racism, cronyism, corruption, and partisan politics that poisoned New Mexicans' efforts to join the Union. Drawing on extensive Spanish-language and archival sources, the author also explores the consequences that the drive to become a state had for New Mexico's Euro-American, Nuevomexicano, American Indian, African American, and Asian communities. Holtby offers a compelling story that shows why and how home rule mattered—then and now—for New Mexicans and for all Americans.
