"Mesilla is full of Billy the Kid history...
For someone who grew up in the area of Mesilla, it's nice to have a well-researched book about the area -- and the giant photographs don't hurt either....
And the thing I was most excited to see is a photo of the hotel registry where the name of "William Bonney" is scrawled on the page.... There is some debate as to whether or not Billy the Kid really signed the book, which the author goes into, but what would Billy the Kid history be without a little controversy?"
Billy the Kid Outlaw Gang Newsletter, Winter, 2013
"David G. Thomas shares the fruits of some impressive historical sleuthing....
...he traces the history of Mesilla's famous restaurant through its various incarnations.... Thanks to Thomas's meticulous documentation, visitors... will appreciate more than fine dining, knowing that the likes of cattle king John Chisum and other prominent figures in the colorful life of Billy the Kid once walked where they sit. Dozens of historic photographs and rare maps illustrate this illuminating book."
-- The Journal of Arizona History, Spring, 2015

Today, the ravens that rest in the trees are my alarm clocks, and the images of myself in the mirror of time are my consciousness. And it is within books like this one, that I can find needed water for my desert soul - a spring of water welling up from my belly that may now quench the thirst of others.
20 years after Pedro Jose Borule killed Chief Cuentas Azules, a reservation was established for the Mescaleros only 150 miles from Mesilla. and for the Tarahumara, it is said, the Devil can even be persuaded to act as a benevolent entity.
Indeed - could the information in this book actually be real in any sense of the word? The interactions of people captured by word of mouth and set to paper hundreds of years ago, seen through our modern eyes - can they be anything but fiction in the most intense meaning of the word? Because, when we engage in imagination, don't we at least admit to ourselves what we are doing, while consuming "history," we may become deluded that we are observing something akin to posthumous "reality?"
Hallucination is the very meaning of fiction.
