Overview

New Mexico Historical Biographies is an encyclopedia of the people of New Mexico—the 47th State in the Union. It is a cross-section of people who have had an influence on life—and sometimes death—in the Land of Enchantment, from the time before the first Europeans arrived around 1540 until today. There are entries for over 1,500 people in New Mexico’s history. Possibly the most important book on New Mexico history since Ralph Emerson Twitchell — 100 years ago.
