The chapters are devided into areas of New Mexico. In each chapter there is a little bit about the history of that area, places to visit and more information about other nearby areas.
Having been to many of the areas that are discussed in this book, I found the description on target and the suggestions of places to visit good. I particularly liked the history of the area with directions to see some of the historical spots in each area.
Very nice. Well worth the money. This book will join me in the car as we go on our trips. It will join the RoadSide History of New Mexico as one of our invaluable, must keep in the car resources.

The lyrics are the same, from book to book, but the fanciful illustrations in this one are enough to engage adults and children as they read this book together.
The perfect gift for any family whose Christmas tradition includes reading this classic!
The winter landscapes fill our senses and Tasha's own gray tabby cat and Welsh Corgi welcome us into this charming world.
Tasha's Santa that you will meet in this book has been portrayed as the poem describes him...a right jolly old elf. He's not that much larger than the corgi and his team really consists of eight "tiny" reindeer. His pointy ears and his Eskimo mukluks add to the delightful ambiance of the book. He dances with the toys and with the happy animals and we can truly believe it will be a happy Christmas for all.
I hope this book becomes a Christmas Eve tradition for many, many more families.
The writing style is clear and streamlined, and Moore admirably avoids indulging in dense anthropological jargon. The book serves as a fine introduction both for non-anthropologists interested in Africa and for students of anthropology seeking a synopsis of past African research in their discipline.
Professor Moore's survey is thorough and compelling, and it benefits from a multitude of sources (her bibliography is nearly as long as her own text!). It would have benefitted even more, however, from the author's own perspectives and points of view. She refrains from adding much in the way of commentary, which is perhaps understandable given the volume of literature with which she deals. Plenty of water has flowed under this particular bridge, and it's all she can do to dip into it here and there and describe the trends and conflicts that have taken place. Still, I would have better enjoyed the read had she contributed more of herself to the book.
