This the newest book by Don Usner who also wrote Sabinos Map, a wonderful history of Chimayo that we carry here. The new book is a lovely mixture of memoir, beautiful black & white photographs by Don, and his reflection on the poetic proverbs known to northern New Mexicans as dichos. Publisher University of NM Press says- This book is the result of research by Usner into these memorable sayings, and it preserves a language and a culture on the verge on dissolution. It is a gateway into a uniquely New Mexican way of life.
