New Mexico History

Early on the morning of August 8, 1881, seven Apache warriors and twelve Navajo raiders made their way on horseback down a piñon-and-ponderosa–shrouded plateau in west central New Mexico Territory to the rock and terrones La Cebolla Ranch house of Domingo and Plácida Romero Gallegos. The raiders killed Domingo Gallegos along with a ranch hand, José María Vargas, carried off Plácida Romero, and rode off into the timbered high country to the east. This is the story of Plácida Romero’s capture, heartbreaking agony, and miraculous escape passed from generation to generation and became the subject of one of the most fascinating and captivating traditional (Hispanic) native ballads in New Mexico history.

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.
