Please join us on Thursday, May 12, 2016 for a presentation by Joy Poole, the Deputy State Librarian of New Mexico. She has edited a fascinating diary of the 1825-28 journey of Dr. Rowland Willard as he traveled the Santa Fe Trail and lived among its inhabitants. She will highlight stories from the book of the medical practices of the day, superstitions among the native peoples, battling a measles epidemic, and many other colorful stories about the Wild West before cowboys, ranchers and pioneers ever set foot there.
