NM NATIVE PRESENTS BOOK ON STATE'S FRONTIER FORTS 3:00 PM SUNDAY, DECEMBER 8, AT PAGE ONE

Carlsbad author Donna Blake Birchell, a New Mexico native, will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, December 8, to talk about and sign her latest non-fiction effort, "Frontier Forts and Outposts of New Mexico."

The book is described as such: "Life in early New Mexico was often perilous. Geographic isolation attracted outlaws and ruffians, and skirmishes often arose between the indigenous tribes and settlers. In response, the U.S. government set up military forts and outposts to protect its new citizens. These strongholds include Fort Craig, where logs were made to look like cannons to fool Confederate troops. Kit Carson, John Pershing and Billy the Kid all called Fort Stanton home, before it became the first federal tuberculosis sanatorium and later a detention center for German prisoners of war. Author Donna Blake Birchell relates little-known yet highly important Civil War battles, the tragedies of the Navajo and Mescalero Apache internments and other dramatic frontier stories."

Birchell is a New Mexico native. Her passion for writing began when she wrote her first short story at age twelve. Now the author of eight books on New Mexico and Texas (including "Wicked Women of New Mexico" and "Haunted Hotels and Ghostly Getaways of New Mexico"), she enjoys bringing their fascinating history to readers. The thrill of research, hearing a fresh take on an old story and playing detective is what keeps her delving into the rich history of the area. Donna’s proudest accomplishments are her two sons who live much too far, in her opinion, from her Carlsbad home.

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Birchell event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
