I was born (1971) and raised in El Paso. The information and pictures are fascinating to me. It's amazing to learn about the history of the town. Such as: People living in the area before the "First Settlers" arrived on Plymouth Rock. How the names were derived, like El Paso and Franklin. The idea that it was the real "Wild West" town that it was. Not that I'm proud of gunslingers and prostitutes,however, it does explain why El Paso/Juarez is the way it is. I scanned the book when it arrived. Now I'm actually reading it. Each subject has inspired me to do further research and learn more fascinating news. Like the "Margarita drink" was born there. Yummo! I think I'll visit that bar next time I visit, if it is still open. I currently live in Houston. This book has raised my awareness of the sites in El Paso. I'm eager to go back and visit the places I overlooked all of these years. I'd like to thank my loving wife for this great christmas gift.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
