Valley of Shining Stone : the story of Abiquiu by Lesley Poling-Kempes( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reading almost like a novel, this book, says writer Marc Simmons, "gives the reader not only the history but the feel of this unusual place." Georgie O'Keeffe captured on canvas as the valley's cliffs, canyons, and turquoise sides, but her life and death here are only a small part of the centuries-long saga. Here, too, are Pueblo Indians, Utes, Navajos, Jicarilla Apaches, Hispanos, and Anglos - many lives tangled together, yet also separate and distinct. Indispensable for travelers, pure pleasure for history buffs and general readers, these pages are a magic carpet to a magic land: Abiquiu, Ghost Ranch, the Valley of Shining Stone

The Harvey girls : women who opened the West by Lesley Poling-Kempes( Recording )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From the 1880s to the 1950s, the Harvey Girls went west to work in Fred Harvey's restaurants along the Santa Fe railway. At a time when there were "no ladies west of Dodge City and no women west of Albuquerque," they came as waitresses, but many stayed and settled, founding the struggling cattle and mining towns that dotted the region. Interviews, historical research, and photographs help re-create the Harvey Girl experience. The accounts are personal, but laced with the history the women lived: the dust bowl, the depression, and anecdotes about some of the many famous people who ate at the restaurants--Teddy Roosevelt, Shirley Temple, Bob Hope, to name a few. Winner of the 1991 New Mexico PressWomen's ZIA award. 1989
