Religion in modern New Mexico( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The religious experiences of modern New Mexico are diverse: they range from Penitente ceremonies to "televangelists," from oriental mysticism to crystal shops, and from sacred mountains to a mega-church that seats 7,000. Taken together, these essays form an interfaith conversation about how the different religious traditions have confronted modernity and materialism. The activities of religious groups in New Mexico are also compared to national trends in such basic matters as church growth, concern for social justice, and teaching personal morality

The Robin Hood of El Dorado : the saga of Joaquin Murrieta, famous outlaw of California's age of gold by Walter Noble Burns( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1932 and never reprinted since, this historical drama re-creates the life and adventures of Joaquin Murrieta, a Hispanic social rebel in California during the tumultuous Gold Rush. Published during the Great Depression at a time of mass deportations of Hispanos to Mexico, this sympathetic portrait of Murrieta and Mexican Americans was unique for its time in voicing social protest. The author romanticizes the pastoral society of Mexican California and introduces the protagonist as a quiet, honest, and unpretentious resident of Saw Mill Flat, California. But the rape and murder of his wife, Rosita, by racist Anglo miners unleashes his vengeful rage. Strapping on his pistols, Murrieta tracks and kills Rosita's murderers and defends Hispanos against violence and dispossession by rampaging gold rush miners. Richard Griswold del Castillo discusses the significance of Murrieta to twentieth-century Mexican Americans and Chicanos, and of Burns's History to contemporary understanding of the mysterious social bandit."--BOOK JACKET
