Book review

This book was a finalist for the New Mexico Book Co-Op History Book of the Year. Most people think of Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County War when Lincoln County, New Mexico is mentioned. �Yet, the county has a rich history besides that chapter of lawlessness and violence. In writing this book I wanted to tell the story of the miners and forest rangers and the Civilian Conservation Corps and early settlers.�The Jornada Mogollon culture was here over a thousand years ago but had left before Christopher Columbus arrived in the new world. �They have left pieces of their lifestyle in the form of pueblos and pottery. �A railroad was built in the basin below the Mesa, but the water there was full of alkaline and chemicals. �The Mesa had pristine mountain water and an engineering miracle was built in the form of a pipeline to get the water from the Mesa to the railroad. �A western religious revival in the form of the Ranchman's Camp continues this summer for the 71st year.
