    uick Read History of Land of EnchantmentThis is a well written very readable history of the Land of Enchantment I read it in preparation for a visit It does exhibit some political bias of the author But I expect it to be useful for our visit

    The content of this book was fine I felt like the author really started letting his own political views shine through in the last third of the book which should not happen in a good history book He also switched so rapidly between every topic that it made for very dry reading If I hadn't been reading it for my daughter's history curriculum I would have let it sit on a shelf to collect dust way before finishing itDon't think I will be using this one for my son when it comes time for state history

    On passing El Morro Inscription Rock he Governor Onate paused long enough to leave a message for posterity The inscription reads 'Paso por aui del Adelantado don Juan de Onate del descubrimiento de la mar del sur a 16 dia del Abril ano 1605' The Adelantado don Juan de Onate passed by here from the discovery of the South Sea on the 16th day of April 1605' In New Mexico literature the words paso por aui came to represent the metaphorical idea that humanity since the beginning of time has and continues to pass by here 42
