Summary Takes us on a journey of the mind through the past of south-central New Mexico. This work introduces us to travelers who have tested the desert - mysterious ancient people who built cliff-top fortresses, Spanish conquistadors, old time cowboys yodeling classical poetry to their cattle, and modern range managers tracking livestock by satellite.
