For centuries, a strand of settlements was built along the Rio Grande by the ancient Pueblo peoples, many of which disappeared before and during the Pueblo Revolt in 1680. In the 1700s, when the Spanish returned, they built villages along the Rio Grande, not only what is now Old Town but many others. To bring to life the history of the North Valley more fully, an effort is made to examine this area and its small villages separately from a general history of Albuquerque. The North Valley provides a unique tapestry of Hispanic, Anglo, and other ethnic groups, rural and urban, historic and modern, old and new architectural styles, and a successful integration of traditional and modern ways of living. The two volumes are intended to appeal both to those readers who have a long history in Albuquerque's North Valley and remember a previous time, and, also, those who do not remember the North Valley as it once was, but now appreciate its unique character. The new book is Albuquerque's North Valley and it is two volumes — Los Griegos & Los Candelarias (Vol. I) and Alameda & Los Ranchos (Vol. II)
