Leyendas: The deep breadth of Taos' history

Posted

Leyendas — the people, places and lore that legends are truly born from. This publication presents the beginning of the 19th annual installment of Tradiciones and within the pages you’ll read about some of the area’s notable people — and a mystery — that left their marks.

Whether it be an 1865 murder gone unpunished; a young fur trapper captured by Mexican troops, in-prisoned and then banished only to return to New Mexico as a territorial governor; a pair of seemingly out-of-place stone pillars with possible ties to the Knights Templar; the unsung recusers of the real-life Smokey Bear; or a World War II Army private who was the first Hispanic-American from the United States to receive the Medal of Honor, Taos is a book full of allure and pride.

Leyendas (Legends) — the first in a four-part series spanning four consecutive weeks — is followed by Raices (Roots), Artes (Arts) and culminates with the Unsung Heroes/Citizen(s) of the Year publication on Oct. 10.
