-A A +A
By Kelly LeVan

New Mexico’s timeless small towns, seductive rivers, indomitable wildflowers and ever-spectacular light have inspired four northern New Mexico author/photographers to release new books this season.Glossy photos of this enchanted state dominate new offerings from New Mexico Magazine, the University of New Mexico and the Museum of New Mexico Press.Lesley S. King’s adorable “King of the Road (New Mexico Magazine, October 2007) features color portraits and landscapes, anecdotes, demographics, history, and colorful descriptions of signature events from seldom-read-about towns throughout the state. From attending the auction of a buttermilk pumpkin pecan pie in Cloudcroft to viewing the universe from the perspective of the Star Point Observatory in Clayton, the Santa Fe author takes part in myriad tiny, yet spirited stories – the sort small-town lives are made of.Research brought Taos’ Taylor Streit to the Valle Vidal, Chama and the “Wild Rivers” of the upper Rio Grande – the “side less fished,” he calls the area in his “Man Vs. Fish: The Fly Fisherman’s Eternal Struggle (University of New Mexico Press, November 2007). Streit also ventures to the Yacatán peninsula, Argentina, Patagonia and the Bahamas in the pages of this personal, witty and knowledge-filled book.
