Some interesting from the Santa Fe New Mexican over the years.

Very interesting and informative

This book is a collection of newspaper articles from The Santa Fe New Mexican from the time of the newspaper's founding, around 1850, to around 1950. In this hundred years' review the town of Santa Fe grows from a lawless frontier town with constant murders and Indian raids to a modern city and the state capital of New Mexico. The stories are fascinating; I did not realize there were so many murders in frontier towns, or that they were so blatant and bold. I thought this the realm of Hollywood, a fantasy, when in fact Santa Fe resembled a movie set town, replete with constant bloodshed. There were also a large number of Indian raids into the Santa Fe area in the early years of the newspaper, all of which are breathlessly reported by the paper. There is the coming of the telegraph, the making of roads, the arrival of the automobile and the making of *modern* roads, the Great Depression, the build-up of Las Alamos and the building of the atom bomb, and the trials of World War II, all reported in the paper.

Along the way are native revivals, anti-Black screeds, pro- and anti- Indian editorials, the jockeying of local politicos and the powerful artists who developed the town as it is now, and all sorts of other fragments of the town's history and worldview as it evolved at this newspaper. It is a fascinating window onto the development of Santa Fe over time, the real town of the people who live there as opposed to the tourist trap that offers an image of itself to out-of-towners. I gobbled this book up in record time, sucked in by the sheer energy of the reporting and the constant swirling stew of players and events in a small town that felt like a force of nature. Oliver LaFarge appears to have done an excellent job of sorting out interesting items to report from the dross, and has given us a meaty, satisfying review of Santa Fe, New Mexico to contrast with the tourist pamphlets and feel-good books that come out every year about the "Santa Fe Style." Read it and revel in the doings of America's oldest city and the players who made it happen, and wonder at what will come next for this ancient place!
