When was Santa Fe under siege? Who was the local witch reputed to fly around in an egg? Which governor found his chair thrown into the street? Why were Judge Eaton's burros so expensive? What was the Santa Fe--Granada, Spain connection? What city celebration was sixty years too soon? Which governor paid a bribe to win a horse race? Who was "Telegraph" Aubry and why was he famous? What ended the usefulness of the Santa Fe Trail?
Do you know the answers to these provocative questions? Marc Simmons does. And in this witty but historically accurate book, he takes readers on a fact-filled but fun journey into Santa Fe's unusual past.
