From the foreword: "Telling New Mexico: A New History anticipates two centennials: that of the Museum of New Mexico in 2009 and that of New Mexico statehood in 2012 . The first is marked in May 2009 when New Mexico History Museum opens behind the venerable Palace of the Governors on the Santa Fe Plaza."
This extensive volume presents New Mexico history from its prehistoric beginnings to the present in essays by forty-five prominent scholars and writers representing diverse disciplines including anthropology, Native American and Chicano studies, history and geography. Published by the Museum of New Mexico Press, 483 pages, paperback. Edited by Marta Weigle with Frances Levine and Louise Stiver.
