This classic collection of nonfiction essays about life in New Mexico by the great Tony Hillerman remains a must read for anyone looking to understand the state's unique charm. The engaging pieces inThe Great Taos Bank Robberyunveil the life and magic one experiences in the Land of Enchantment.This edition includes a new introduction and foreword by Anne Hillerman and new photographs with each story."It's as serious a 'glance' over our state as it is often hilarious, from the opening relación about law enforcement in Taos, through succeeding commentaries on Indian encounters with Paleface, a Nigerian guest's assessment of Santa Fe, a search for Folsom Man and so forth . . . it furnishes myriad moments of pleasurable insight."--New Mexico Magazine

As a journalist, Hillerman has worked for newspapers in Oklahoma and for UPI. He has been a political reporter in Santa Fe, a professor of journalism and chair of the journalism department at the University of New Mexico, and assistant to the president of that university. The American Southwest and its landscape and peoples, particularly the Navajo, are the focus for many of Hillerman's mysteries. He hopes that people learn more about Native Americans and their cultures by reading his books, and he draws upon their many traditions and stories for his novels. Thus, as people read Hillerman's work, they are learning about another culture and history as well as enjoying a finely crafted mystery. His two detectives---Officer Jim Chee and Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn---first came together in Skinwalkers (1987). Tony Hillerman's many honors include the Mystery Writers of America's Edgar & Grand Master awards, the Silver Spur Award for best novel set in the West, & the Navajo tribe's Special Friend Award. His best-selling novels include "The First Eagle", "The Fallen Man", & "Finding Moon".
