    I'm getting to be a real fan of Lynn Michelsohn. Her easy-to-read books are crammed full of sparkling historical nuggets. This book is as much about the Santa Fe of 1872 as it is about Billy, because Michelsohn has distilled loads of varied information into a concise (and yet as complete as possible) picture of what it would have been like to live there as a young boy. Lots of it is speculation, but Michelsohn is careful to tell us which facts about Billy's life at that time can actually be docu I'm getting to be a real fan of Lynn Michelsohn.

This book is as much about the Santa Fe of 1872 as it is about Billy, because Michelsohn has distilled loads of varied information into a concise (and yet as complete as possible) picture of what it would have been like to live there as a young boy. Lots of it is speculation, but Michelsohn is careful to tell us which facts about Billy's life at that time can actually be documented, while giving us the look, feel, tastes, sounds, occupations, and recreations of Santa Fe as he might have experienced it. Her main resource was an almost heroic study of the newspaper of those days. It's only available in microfilm, yet she has examined not only the news stories, but the fine print in every advertisement, and organized all the most interesting and enlightening bits into an easily digestible page-turner. I look forward to the rest of the trilogy.
