If Mountains Die book. The result is a lyric tribute to one of the last truly wild areas of the United States.

John Nichols captures this beauty perfectly in his first of the Taos series, "If Mountains Should Di. Accompanied by heart-grabbing photographs, this book describes his first few years in Taos as a transplanted East-Coaster.

John Nichols's short, prescient essays and Bill Davis's photographs constitute a classic memoir of a place. The book describes a small Hispanic and Native American agricultural community forced to modernize by big business and a group of hippies. Nichols moved to Taos in 1969, after an "eye-opening and life-changing trip" to Guatemala, which gave him a perspective on the disparity of wealth and poverty. John Nichols captures this beauty perfectly in his first of the Taos series, "If Mountains Should Di.

Mr. Nichols is a very good writer. I've a couple of his books. I read, on average two books a day. Because his writings have been featured on local TV programs (I a fellow New Mexican) I've picked up a few. I look forward to writings on the area. Mr. Nichols definitely is descriptive; but then, his subject-matter lends easily to that. I however, get bogged down, and impatient when reading his books. Usually I get through a book in a day. Not his. I fuss all the way through them; labored reading. EXCELLENT writer, without a doubt. To me, though, his books are saturating rather than satiating.

New Mexico, and the Taos area in particular, has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. John Nichols captures this beauty perfectly in his first of the Taos series, "If Mountains Should Die." Accompanied by heart-grabbing photographs, this book describes his first few years in Taos as a transplanted East-Coaster. Nichols not only captures the raw beauty of the land, but also the people that occupy it. Along with this, he describes the disturbing and continous struggle to keep it alive and free from suburbanization. His personal and touching accounts of his own struggle with the place and the people bring it alive in unexpected ways. There is also plenty of respect here, along with a deep anger for what is being done to the land, the people, and the unique way of life found in Taos Valley. As this is a very special place in my heart, I found it easy to cry and laugh along with him.
