From the original guide
New Mexico today represents a blend of three cultures- Indian, Spanish, and American- each of which has had its time upon the stage and dominated the scene. The composite of culture which now, in the union of statehood, presents a harmonious picture upon casual inspection, is deceptive, for the veneer of Americanization in places runs thin indeed.
