SANTA FE Then and Now (Paperback)
Special Order - Arrival Times Vary
This guide provides the major attractions and events to expect during the year and an introduction to Santa Fe's unique cultural heritage. Native Americans lived here for more than 10,000 years with the Ancestral Puebloans settling along the Rio Grande well over 1,000 years ago. New Mexico became a Spanish Colony in the late 1500s and Santa Fe became the capitol in 1610. The Pueblo Revolt of 1680 resulted when numerous Indians tribes united and drove the Spanish out of New Mexico. Some call this America's first revolution. The Spanish eventually returned to an uneasy peace with the Puebloans. New Mexico became part of the United States as a result of the Mexican-American War and the massacre at Taos. The book includes the Turquoise Trail Scenic Byway and the High Road to Taos, along with events that bring people to Santa Fe from all over the world. Join us and celebrate life. Bienvenidos.
