By Richard McCord

"For anyone who's had the privilege and pleasure of residing or visiting New Mexico, this is a must read. The price and eay readabiity make it a fulfilling treat." NEW MEXICO MAGAZINE

“Author and journalist Richard McCord is a natural storyteller. These sketches of his, lovingly stitched together, portray quirky, unpredictable New Mexicans, and especially their unconventional capital of Santa Fe. The characters who briefly walk through these pages each cast a ray of light on the human condition, and occasionally even evoke a chuckle. McCord’s book is as absorbing as it is genuine.” (MARC SIMMONS, historian)

“Richard McCord is Santa Fe’s answer to Mark Twain. His intelligence, wit and insight have added to our cultural life for three decades. Read this book—it will lift your spirits.” (NANCY WOOD, author, poet, photographer)

“Some of these essays on New Mexico read like fiction although we know them to be history. If you live in New Mexico, at times it is hard to differentiate between these two worlds or realities. McCord captures these nuances with style and grace.” (ORLANDO ROMERO, writer/historian)

The party in the cemetery. The amputation of the bronze foot. The reincarnation of Billy the Kid. The only book ever to make The New York Times best-seller list in both fiction AND non-fiction. The female gentlemen. The cave that waited 40 years. The murderous “squaw man.” Where will you find these strange stories, and more? Only in “The Other State: New Mexico, USA.” Anyone who lives in or travels to New Mexico understands that it is a place unlike anywhere else. Extremely unlike anywhere else. These true tales, brief and fast-moving, paint a unique portrait of a unique land. They are told by a multiple-award-winning writer, who found his home in New Mexico decades ago and has been telling its story ever since. If you too feel New Mexico’s spell, then welcome to . . . “The Other State.”

Raised in Georgia, trained in New York, Richard McCord found home in New Mexico in 1971. Three years later he founded the weekly Santa Fe Reporter, which soon won a national reputation for excellence. Now a freelance, he celebrates the place he loves.
