Santa Fe: Museum of New Mexico Press, 1996. The basin is fed by the Galisteo Creek. Northeast of Galisteo Basin lies the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and on the southwest lie the Sandia Mountains. Because of its location lying between mountain ranges and connecting the Rio Grande Valley with the Great Plains, the Galisteo Basin was used as a trade route by prehistoric and historic indigenous and later also by the Spanish explorers.

fantastic book and service...

If you want to drive east from Santa Fe, New Mexico to Interstate 40 and then on to Texas, the quickest and most direct route out of Santa Fe is U.S. 285. About 15 miles south-east of Santa Fe you will start driving a two-lane road through the San Cristóbal Ranch and you will continue doing so for another 20 miles, as U.S. 285 transects the ranch through some glorious New Mexico terrain. Even at 90 miles per hour (no problem in these open expanses), the drive is good for your soul.

I often have wanted to explore the area, but the ranch is private property - one of the largest cow-calf operations in the country as well as a major quarter horse breeding operation. So this generously illustrated book has had to serve as my vicarious tour of this grand space. The author and photographer, Christina Singleton Mednick, is a member of the family that has owned the ranch since 1986. It is her first book and it is a fine one - much better written and produced than one would expect of a first book documenting a family's personal property.

A part of SAN CRISTÓBAL is devoted to the current ranching operations, but the far greater part concerns the history of the area - prehistoric, Spanish colonization, and then occupation by Mexican and then Anglo farmers/ranchers. What makes the book (and the area itself) especially captivating is that the Galisteo Basin was an area of settlement by the Southern Tewas, one of the groups of Pueblo Indians. On the San Cristóbal Ranch there are the remains of six Pueblo villages, including one with more than 1,000 rooms in which as many as 1,000 Indians lived circa 1400. There also are thousands of bewitching petroglyphs, of which some of the more intriguing ones have been photographed for this book.

Indeed, the photographs are what are most striking about the book, making it a prime candidate for a "coffee-table book". But the history is pretty good as well, making it also a good addition to any library. (There were a few instances in which my understanding of the relevant historical, anthropological, or archaeological facts differs from what author Mednick presents, but the "mistakes" - if indeed mistakes they be - are minor.) SAN CRISTÓBAL probably will appeal most to those already interested in northern New Mexico and/or the Pueblo Indians, but for the uninitiated it should serve as a worthy introduction to those subjects.
