"It's as serious a 'glance' over our state as it is often hilarious, from the opening relacion about law enforcement in Taos, through succeeding commentaries on Indian encounters with Paleface, a Nigerian guest's assessment of Santa Fe, a search for Folsom Man and so forth . . . it furnishes myriad moments of pleasurable insight."--"New Mexico Magazine""
