A retired state historian, Tórrez creates vivid vignettes of New Mexico’s past. He enlivens his accounts of arranged marriages, water disputes and stagecoaches with historical photos and documents. The book also contains a glossary of archaic Spanish words: an enechisado means a person on whom a spell is cast; mohatrero is someone who cheats in business.
