New Mexico's history is presented here for the middle-school reader. The book begins with nine chapters on the Indians, Spanish, and Mexicans prior to 1848; another nine chapters cover New Mexico as a part of the United States. All readers will come away with a heightened interest in New Mexico and an appreciation of its cultural diversity.

Each author brings over twenty-five years' teaching experience in public schools to the task of writing an engaging and balanced textbook. They present a comprehensive introduction to the key geographic, social, economic, and political features that have shaped the state's history. Their narrative is enriched by 165 photographs, 30 maps, 6 time lines, 30 in-depth special interest features, and 15 eyewitness views of history.

Accompanying the textbook is a separate comprehensive teacher's guide with lesson plans and enrichment activities, answers to section and chapter reviews, student worksheets, cooperative learning exercises and individual activities, tests, and resource, reference, and bibliographic suggestions.

A textbook tracing the history of New Mexico's land and people from the Ice Age to the present.
