One of Frank Waters's most popular novels, People of the Valley takes place high in the Sangre de Cristo mountains where an isolated Spanish-speaking people confront a threatening world of change. "Readers who are content to take the primitive and ruthless Maria del Valle on her own terms will treasure her and return to her again and again." --The New York Times "Mr. Waters has created in Old Maria a character of vital and lyrical intensity. His 'people of the valley' are humble, earnest, superstitious, lovable folk, the stuff of nature, the elementary stuff of a decent and prevailing humanity." --The Los Angeles Times

User Review  - Stuart - Goodreads

If you ever lived in Mora Valley New Mexico this is a book that you can identify with. I read this just because there isn't much written about Mora and just because I really liked living there. Read full review
