Through historical photographs, information from documents preserved by the author's family, and oral histories from residents many in their 90s tells the story of New Mexico's oldest, intact Spanish colonial plaza, from prehistoric settlements in the area to current struggles of the community. The plaza is targeted for renovation by historic and civic organizations; but these groups have met with a chilly reception from current residents and property owners, descendants of the families inhabiting the area since the 18th century, who see the renovation an an imposition by outsiders.

From the Publisher:

Sabino's Map: Life in Chimay's Old Plaza recounts and celebrates the history of the Plaza del Cerro, the only fully intact colonial plaza remaining in New Mexico. With its lively oral histories and rare historical photographs, Sabino's Map is the first in-depth look at perhaps the best known Hispanic village in the American Southwest. Sabino's Map provides a thorough cultural history of Chimay, from prehistoric settlements to the current struggles of an isolated community in a modern and changing world. Through historical photographs, collections of documents preserved by author's family, and from the words and memories of the people who live there, Usner evokes a poignant sense of the colorful people who remember and continue to make the history of the Plaza del Cerro.
