Ayer y Ahora: Yesterday and Today
With this anthology, everyday folk from Hispanic and Anglo cultures build a composite picture of life today and yesterday in Santa Fe and northern New Mexico. The once isolated region has undergone rapid change. As new generations of Hispanics no longer speak Spanish, the culture of their forebears vanishes. And Santa Fe, once "The City Different," is much like other cities now. And yet, despite the arrival of modernity, both city and region retain their ability to enchant.
