Publisher: Mount Pleasant, SC : Arcadia Publishing by arrangement with Fonthill Media LLC, 2020Description: 160 p. : color ill. ; 23 cmISBN: 9781634992343 Report number: BV-Winter/Spring 21Subject(s): Abandoned buildings -- New Mexico -- History -- Pictorial works | New Mexico -- HistoryGenre/Form: Pictorial works.Summary: As rural populations decline and young people move to ever-larger cities, much of our past is left behind. Out on the plains or along now-quiet highways, changes in modes of livelihood and transportation have moved only in one direction. Stately homes and hand-built schools, churches and bars-these are not just the stuff of individual lives, but of an entire culture. New Mexico, among the least-dense states in the country, was crossed by both the Spanish and Route 66; the railroad stretched toward every hopeful mine and outlaws died in its arms. Its pueblos are among the oldest human habitations in the U.S., and the first atomic bomb was detonated nearly dead in its center.
