Publisher's Description
Northern New Mexico is a complex weave of pride and history. In this region of ancient traditions and striking environmental and ethnic diversity, Norman Mauskopf has spent the last decade photographing the Hispanic people and their culture. The photographs that emerged depict the intersection of religion, injustice, community, and transcendence.

Included is a poem, commissioned for the book, by the celebrated New Mexican poet, Jimmy Santiago Baca.

'and newborns scream their arrivals, and fathers with wrist chains and tattoos cling to their little loves in parks, and the circle widens and expands and ripples toward every closed gate, with tribal drums beating, gourds blowing and rattles rattling we are here, we are here, we are here'
