Fun Facts For The State of New Mexico
New Mexico, constituent state of the United States of America. It became the 47th state of the union in 1912. New Mexico ranks fifth among the 50 U.S. states in terms of total area and is bounded by Colorado to the north, Oklahoma and Texas to the east, Texas and the Mexican states of Chihuahua and Sonora to the south, and Arizona (which was part of the Territory of New Mexico from 1850 to 1863) to the west. At its northwestern corner New Mexico joins Arizona, Utah, and Colorado in the only four-way meeting of states in the United States. The capital of New Mexico is Santa Fe.
Americans of Indian, Spanish, and Anglo descent create a rich cultural mix in New Mexico. The state has the highest percentage of Native American population and the highest percentage of Hispanic population in the country. This is because of its history, during which the territory was controlled by each of these groups at different times.
Pueblo Indians now live near Santa Fe, New Mexico's capital, which is located on land their ancestors once controlled. Today, the state's Navaho Indians have the largest reservation in the country. Significant numbers of Apaches, Pueblos, and Utes also live in New Mexico. You can buy Indian jewelry and pottery in Albuquerque, the state's largest city.
New Mexico is also one of the leading mining states in the country. There are large deposits in the northwestern and southeastern regions of the state. New Mexico leads the country in production of uranium and potash, a substance used in making soap, fertilizers, and glass. Large deposits of coal and copper are also found in the state.
Farming is another industry in New Mexico. Most of the state's farmland is used for grazing. Cotton and wheat are grown on New Mexico's fertile soil in places where water is available. Water conservation is an important problem that faces the state, even though important dams and irrigation projects have been undertaken.
Famous Peoples From New Maxico
Edward Paul Abbey (January 29, 1927 – March 14, 1989) was an American author and essayist noted for his advocacy of environmental issues and criticism of public land policies. His best-known works include Desert Solitaire, a non-fiction autobiographical account of his time as a park ranger at Arches National Park considered to be iconic work of nature writing and a staple of early environmentalist writing, the novel The Monkey Wrench Gang, which has been cited as an inspiration by environmentalists and groups defending nature by various means, also called eco-warriors, his novel Hayduke Lives, and his essay collections Down the River (with Henry Thoreau & Other Friends) (1982) and One Life at a Time, Please (1988).
Abbey was born in Indiana, Pennsylvania, on January 29, 1927 to Mildred Postlewait and Paul Revere Abbey. Mildred was a schoolteacher and a church organist, and gave Abbey an appreciation for classical music and literature. Paul was a socialist, anarchist, and atheist whose views strongly influenced Abbey.
Abbey graduated from high school in Indiana, Pennsylvania, in 1945. Eight months before his 18th birthday, when he would be faced with being drafted into the U.S. Military, Abbey decided to explore the American southwest. He traveled by foot, bus, hitchhiking, and freight train hopping. During this trip, he fell in love with the desert country of the Four Corners region. Abbey wrote: " crags and pinnacles of naked rock, the dark cores of ancient volcanoes, a vast and silent emptiness smoldering with heat, color, and indecipherable significance, above which floated a small number of pure, clear, hard-edged clouds. For the first time, I felt I was getting close to the West of my deepest imaginings, the place where the tangible and the mythical became the same."
