I am planning on moving to New Mexico so I sought out Tony Hillerman's own personal attraction for the area that he has spent so many years writing about. Being a writer myself I knew that he was the one to capture the "Land of Enchantment" in a manner which would lead the way to my new adventure. Like so many famous artists, Tony, through his eloquent use of words creates a pastiche of geographical awe inspiring moments that goes beyond even the marvelous pictures in the book. He describes New Mexico with incredible detail as it draws one deep into the ageless mystery of the area. "A great bank of fog builds along the ridges of the Sandia Mountains, forming an opaque wall. It looms eventually a thousand feet higher than the ten-thousand-foot crest. Then it begins to spill--like the heavy vapor from a beaker of acid rolling down the glass. From Albuquerque's West Mesa residential districts across the Rio Grande one sees it in perspective--a Niagara of fog pouring slowly down the cliffs of the mountain range. But for those who live on Albuquerque's northeastern fringes, in the Sandia foothills, this spectacle takes place almost directly overhead. The cataract of mist falls silently toward their roofs as if some great aerial dam had broken to pour down the clouds. The fog rarely reaches the foothills. Somewhere up the slope the warm air on the west face of the mountain reaches a balance with the cold mist pressing downward. The cloud begins to evaporate, raveling away from the bottom. Then the red light of sunset catches all this and turns it pink. And what had bee awe-inspiring is reduced to mere beauty." At this point one's own imagination begins to take over as you hear the delicate whistle of the wind and you think you can hear a cayote howling off in the distance. Your hopes and expectations are not left wanting in this book. A great testament to a writer, great photography and New Mexico itself.
This book is yet another mine of Hillerman gold. "New Mexico, the Rio Grande, and Other Essays" is a very concise and complete treatise on New Mexico and the part played by the Rio Grande in the complexities of the state. Mr. Hillerman has given us a beautiful look at New Mexico, even if it had been published without the wonderful photos. It is a veritable history at a glance. I particularly enjoyed reading his story regarding the inspiration for at least one of his novels. After reading the first book I purchased from you, I ordered another for a gift. Thank you Mr. Hillerman, and Alibris.
