Having just moved to New Mexico, I want to learn a bit about my new home, and thought this would be a good start. It was.

While Dr. Marriott covered a lot of ground, and could only do it superficially in most cases, still, it was ground most of which I knew little to nothing about. I did know about some of them, and it was fun to read and have my knowledge verified.

She covers 15 myths from the days of the conquistadors to modern phenomena, including the alien crash near Roswell, haunted hotels, and a canyon with gold that has been lost to time.
