Editorial Reviews

Review

"I couldn't put it down." Casey Sanchez, Pasatiempo Staff Writer, The Santa Fe New Mexican. (edited by author)

"Trujillo raises important questions about the place of stories and the myth about group identity as well as queries about the way we choose to remember and to forget history." --Jack Clark Robinson, H-Net, New Mexico History and Culture (added by author)

This book is both an ethnographic and literary triumph. It is extremly well written and should be understood by the general reader as well as scholars and students, anthropological and otherwise. Trujillo Also relates the information in his specific essays to a widespread literature on the region and on Hispanics and Chicanos more broadly, making the work very timely. It is certainly a major contribution to our knowledge of the Espanola valley and goes well beyond the earlier studies. It should become a "classic" New Mexican ethnography and would be particularly useful for college courses in Chicano studies or in-depth readingo on New Mexico's fascinating history and culture.... Trujillo's work correcs and supplements the nostalgic, romantic images written in books, articles, and tourist brochures on the "Land of Enchantment." In his Land of Disenchantment, Trujillo instead reveals the human condition. Review by Joseph Whitecotton.

Trujillo accomplishes all this with a journalistic eye for economy and factual representation, the heart and voice of a poet, and the mind of an ethnologist portraying these events as he knows them to be true. His influence satisfies with a tenderness and empathy for the negative, the love and loss in Espanola. He has searched passionately for powerful notes in Hegel's "mad medleys" in order to produce positively and "restore spirit to itself." Review by Terry Mulert.

From the Inside Flap

This experimental study of cultural dysfunction in New Mexico's Española Valley tells the stories of several of its Nuevomexicano residents, both famous and notorious.
