The Towns of the Sandia Mountains
Mike Smith, historian and author
The Sandia Mountains have been home to people for millennia. From Navajo, to Spanish, to American Civil War soldiers and beyond, many people have traveled through and lived in this area. Mike Smith collected photographs and stories about this place, and published it in his popular book “The Towns of the Sandia Mountains.” Now, The New Mexico Genealogical Society in cooperation with the East Mountain Historical Society presents this author and his stories.
Mike Smith will be selling and signing copies of his book at the program.
