Excerpt from book: is still a land for the making of delight by means of agriculture. And the reclaiming processes go on sometimes without the discovery of new, or the control of the wild, sources of water for irrigation. The people of New Mexico in some regions, especially the Estancia Valley, are watching their bank accounts become actually plethoric because of their discovery that beans grow prolifically in their hitherto slowly developing regions. " Bean festivals " are becoming growingly more popular in the State, and I can vouch that the delight manifested on the faces and in the demeanour of residents and visitors alike has never been surpassed by the world-famed bean-eaters of the far-away East, though their beans are accompanied by noted brands of brown bread and culture. Finally, as one reads the chapter on the influence of New Mexico upon literature and art, it will be seen how great has been the delight produced in artist and author by this land of wonder and fascination. Taos, for half a century, has attracted its artists and to-day boasts a large and growing colony whose pictures are recognized as belonging to the noted art productions of America. Santa Fe has become a noted Literary Colony. Here Bandelier produced some of his greatest work; in its ancient Palacio General Lew Wallace wrote part of his Ben Hur. Here Davis gained much of the material for his El Gringo and Spanish Conquest, and Lummis stored his mind with history and romance which he afterwards put into his Land of Poco Tiempo, Spanish Pioneers, and two volumes of fascinating short stories. It is also the home of the first real field-school of American Archaeology in America. Indeed it can confidently be affirmed that without New Mexico there would be no accepted Science of American Archaeology to the outside world....
