"These Were the Valiant" A collection of New Mexico profiles by Ann Nolan Clark "Here is the flavor, the romance, the very essence of old New Mexico captured in series of profiles of men and women who, like Kit Carson, "led the way" and helped to develop the New Mexico of today. This is a nostalgic look at the past that will help New Mexicans to understand the present, as well as to enjoy remembered adventures of other days. Across the pages of this informal history march tthe great and near great of yesteryear . . . Kit Carson, the scout; St. Vrain, the trader-trapper; Bishop Lamy, General Kearny, Sam Watrous, the tree-planting trader; The Hermit of Hermit's Peak, Granny Brackett, Mother Magdelen and the Miraculous Staircase, the Romeros of Romeroville, and many more - some well remembered, some forgotten, except by their familes or an obscure footnote in a volume of history.
