New Mexico. Land of Enchantment. It is also the land of mystery, impossibility, and the ridiculous. Join author Barbara Marriott for New Mexico: Myths and Mysteries, a look at some of New Mexico’s most compelling (and explosive) events and people, such as Albert J. Fountain, lawyer and civic leader, who defended Billy the Kid and also took on cattle rustlers. He disappeared along with his young son, Henry. Their bodies were never found.

Lost treasure, legendary lawlessness, and a cast of characters that proves truth is stranger than fiction. Such as the tragic tale of George McJunkin; he was born a slave, and when the Civil War ended he was just 14. He headed west and became a respected cowboy. He died never knowing that he’d found the first clue to an age-old mystery: when did humans first arrive in North America.

Ms. Marriott is an award-winning author with 11 published books to her credit. She has also worked as a university professor, management consultant, trainer, creative advertising director, and she feels it is her PhD in cultural anthropology that provides the tools to examine and write about her subjects.

Presentation at 12 PM only.
