Martha Shipman Andrews Editor- OUT OF THE SHADOWS The Women of Southern New Mexico

OUT OF THE SHADOWS The Women of Southern New Mexico

edited by  Martha Shipman Andrews

The Wild West with Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, Geromino, and the U. S. Cavalry center stage, is so powerful and entertaining a myth that the lives and contribution of New Mexico’s women – especially those of Southern New Mexico – have been largely overlooked.  The essays by noted scholars and archivists have found the lives of women in southern New Mexico to be not full of endless toil and depriation but rather, in the words of young Mildred Barns from the mining community of Lake Valley, “delightful, exciting, and filled with a sense of abundance.”
