About 1.25 million years ago, a spectacular volcanic eruption created the 13-mile wide circular depression now known as the Valles Caldera, located in northern New Mexico. This revised & expanded edition marks the twentieth anniversary of the Valles Caldera Preservation Act, a visionary piece of legislation that transferred to the public domain a privately owned ranch (signed in 2000 by President Bill Clinton). The preserve was assigned to a board of citizens appointed by the president to manage it as a self-sustaining preserve. The experiment in semi-private land management ended in 2014 as the Valles Caldera was legislatively reassigned to the National Park Service.

Land and Lives in Galisteo since 1814

New Mexico History

Galisteo

© 2020

In her second book on Galisteo, New Mexico, cultural historian Lucy R. Lippard writes about the place she has lived for a quarter century. The history of a place she refers to as Pueblo Chico (little town) is based largely on other people’s memories―those of the descendants of the original settlers in the early 1800s, heirs of the Spanish colonizers and the indigenous colonized who courageously settled this isolated valley despite official neglect and threats of Indian raids. The memories of those who came later―Hispano and Anglo―also echo through this book. But too many lives have already receded into the land, and few remain to tell the stories. The land itself has the longest memory, harboring traces of towns, trails, agriculture, and other land use that goes back thousands of years.

The Japanese word, “yōkai” refers to a range of supernatural beings such as ghosts, demons, monsters, shapeshifters, tricksters, and other strange kinds of creatures. Yōkai also refers to peculiar entities (or presences), weird or unexplainable phenomena, and the visual depiction of these ideas. The book introduces readers to Japan’s relationship to yōkai: what they are, their associated tales, how people engaged with or interpreted yōkai in different contexts, and why they remain so popular in Japan. The contributors delve into popular culture themes to connect traditional folklore, folk art, and imagery to trends in Japan as well as in the United States.

Sierra San Luis forms the nexus of the Sierra Madres and the Rocky Mountains. Michael Berman intends for PERDIDO to bring attention to this remarkable mountain range at a seminal point in time. The ecological systems on the planet are failing, yet in the Sierra San Luis the collapse has reversed itself. Things are shifting, but they are not falling apart—water, soil, and ecological diversity are all increasing in quantity and improving in quality. The question to explore is, why here and nowhere else?
