About this title

Synopsis:

The story of Rayado, on the southwest frontier, as recounted by women and men who were there and recorded their impressions and observations; a detailed look at the locale, daily life, and events in the region.

From the Author:

While in the fifth grade at Lowell Elementary School in Waterloo, Iowa, I remember reading a book about Kit Carson. Sixty years later I found myself at a reconstructed frontier settlement in New Mexico called Rayado that was started in 1846 by Kit Carson and his friend, Lucien Bonaparte Maxwell.  As summer staff assigned to Rayado at Philmont Scout Ranch I was intrigued by the place and decided then and there to write a book about it. After several starts I arrived at the approach of surveying all original written records I could find that specifically mention Rayado and to record them. Visiting many libraries in New Mexico and copying many pages from many books, I came up with contents of this compilation. Hopefully the compilation is complete, however if not, please let me know. Libraries include Donnelly Library at New Mexico Highlands University, Fort Union National Monument, and University of New Mexico. Philmont Scout Ranch permitted me to include the collection of photographs that show Rayado. In the five photos the Kit Carson house can be seen in various states of disrepair. In a wide-angle photo we can see the layout of early Rayado including the location of the Kit Carson house that is now torn down.
