Bookmobile in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains: A Cargo of Imagery and Simile-

Times Select has a feature, "Taking Books Far and Wide, on the Road Less Traveled By," about the bookmobile route of Cimmaron City Librarians Betty Palmer and Leroy Chavez in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. (Colfax County, NM).

Dan Barry writes:
The bookmobile makes its rounds — a Head Start school in Velarde, a post office in Alcalde, another one in Dixon — all the while rolling past a landscape almost beyond any book’s words. Mesas that resemble massive, futuristic tables. Bare apple trees with branches extended in hallelujah praise. The Rio Grande, now calm, now churning.
