Frontier towns, the mining booms decades behind them, had to choose . The mythos of the Wild West celebrates the spirit of those who sought to settle in a new land, domesticate its difficulties, and thrive.

Frontier towns, the mining booms decades behind them, had to choose between extinction and transforming themselves into caricatures of their glory days for public consumption. Old West history buffs may endlessly dispute whether Wyatt Earp was wearing a specific kind of bow tie during the . Corral shoot-out in 1881, but may be oblivious of much of what was happening in the region during those years. Why, I ask, is that spirit admired in some cases and condemned in others? Our Shakespeare guides protest that I’m conflating two different things.

Edge cities are America's next urban frontier, and Garreau's book is the best new guide to the territory. And that led us to build our market meeting places in the fashion of today's malls. Cars are key elements in this phenomenon. They make it possible for people to separate their workplaces from the residences, and they define the distances which are considered commutable.

As they say, yesterday is done, done over. Tomorrow is yet to come, but today well lived is a gift. Looking around and seeing no one, it only takes the old KGB operative ten seconds to open the lock. He looks in. Oh, I’m sorry, he says to the woman sitting on the commode, head between her legs and her jeans and panties down around her ankles.

Book about my favorite town, well written for what it is. Disappointed it did not mention more people down through the years that contributed to the town, or businesses, or the contribution the nearby air force base research did for the space race.

This book gives the history of Alamogordo, New Mexico in celebration of its' centennial since its' founding. It also includes history of the surrounding area-Southern New Mexico. It is very well written and interesting.
