9781574160871: 1: Albuquerque: Portrait of a Western City

What is it like to visit—or live in—one of the most exciting places in the country? Albuquerque: Portrait of a Western City uniquely captures what the city is all about and what it has to offer. First, fifteen expert contributors bring its culture and history to life. When you walk the streets of Old Town, famous for its shops and cuisine, you’ll know the colorful stories of those who lived in the centuries-old adobe houses you pass. Then Mary Kay Cline, former CEO of the Albuquerque Convention & Visitors Bureau, creates a definitive guidebook to the city for tourists and residents alike. Compiled as Albuquerque celebrates its Tricentennial, this book—really two books in one—provides ample evidence for why the city is winning raves as the place to be!

Tony Hillerman says "I’ve lived in Albuquerque for almost 50 years. It has no pretension of sophistication and it’s full of friendly people from all over. It has mountains and the Rio Grande river with its bosque. Ditches run everywhere, as they have since the 16th century. You can walk along the river and while away your time."
