There are few better times to curl up with a good book than during the holidays and New Mexico in Focus showcases two notable titles this week. First, journalist and former New Mexican Cathy Robbins speaks about "All Indians Do Not Live in Teepees – or Casinos." Spurred by the repatriation of ancient remains to the Pecos Pueblo, the book examines themes common to New Mexico American Indian tribes.
Also, host Gene Grant talks to Joseph Torres and Juan Gonzalez about their examination of race and the American media in "News for All the People." Gonzalez, co-host of Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman, and Torres, of Free Press, tell a centuries-long tale of minority issues and ownership of newspapers, radio and television stations in the United States. The Line is back, too, with a special Thanksgiving edition spotlighting what's working in New Mexico when it comes to politics and public policy.
