Synopsis

This classic collection of nonfiction essays about life in New Mexico by the great Tony Hillerman remains a must read for anyone looking to understand the state’s unique charm. The engaging pieces in The Great Taos Bank Robbery unveil the life and magic one experiences in the Land of Enchantment.

This edition includes a new introduction and foreword by Anne Hillerman and new photographs with each story.

“It’s as serious a ‘glance’ over our state as it is often hilarious, from the opening relación 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
