Religion in modern New Mexico( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 212 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
New Mexican lives : profiles and historical stories( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By emphasizing the links between important New Mexicans and their times, this book makes history a personal story of drama and pathos played out within a larger context of pivotal events and formative ideas." "This book will appeal to anyone interested in knowing more about how a fascinating mix of people of various cultures have molded New Mexico's history."--Jacket
Tombstone; an Iliad of the Southwest by Walter Noble Burns( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in 1849, Earp grew up on the Missouri-Kansas frontier and first came to notice as a no-nonsense town marshal in rip-roaring Dodge City, Kansas. Moving to wide-open Tombstone, Arizona, in 1879, he became a businessman and deputy United States marshal and was soon joined by four brothers. In Burns's narrative, the Earp clan represents law and order in the lawless chaotic Old West. These antagonistic forces explode in the bloody and legendary gunfight at the OK Corral between the Earps and the Clanton-McLowery gang. The Earps prevailed, but the subsequent shootings of two Earp brothers drove the calm, courageous, and somewhat emotionless Wyatt to take the law into his own hands. In a personal vendetta, he hunted and killed the treacherous "assassins." Wyatt Earp's most recent biographer, Casey Tefertiller, discusses the influence of Tombstone on the history and legend of Wyatt Earp and the Old West."--Jacket
History of "Billy the Kid" by Charles A Siringo( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Texas in 1855, Siringo was a cowboy, Pinkerton detective, western writer, and Hollywood advisor until his death in 1928, and crossed the Kid's path once or twice in the Texas Panhandle and New Mexico. His account incorporates some inaccuracies but offers genuine historical nuggets such as cowboy Jim East's eyewitness account of the Kid's capture by Pat Garrett at Stinking Spring. Enormously popular at the turn of the century, Siringo single-handedly kept Billy the Kid's flame alive until the 1920s. Historian Frederick Nolan discusses the place of Siringo's account in Billy the Kid literature."--BOOK JACKET
