"History conveys great knowledge and wisdom for those who are patient enough to listen. Nasario Garcia has listened intently to the old-timers of his native Bernalillo, sharing their words in both English and Spanish for all to understand and appreciate. The result is his twentieth oral history book, each a true gem for all students of New Mexico history and culture."--Richard A. Melzer, Author of New Mexico: A Celebration of the Land of Enchantment
"The living testimony of the elders of Bernalillo emerges under the sensitive ear and gifted pen of one of New Mexico's finest storytellers. Between the light and dark, Bernalillo is born, a continuum of wisdom into words, all telling of the profundity of a place. Garcia's metaphor of darkness-where beauty may also sit-invites an active vigilance born from a storied introspection."--Estevan Rael-Galvez, Vice President of Historic Sites, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Washington, D.C.
