- Vanishing Borderlands: The Fragile Landscape of the U.S.-Mexico Border
- By John Annerino. Countryman Press. 128 pp. $29.95.
- Many of us love the Southwestern borderlands for their stirring landscapes and timeless people. In transfixing photos and enchanting essays, John Annerino ably brings us both. He reminds those of us who live here why we love the Southwest, and to those who live elsewhere, he explains why. But, though beautiful land enchanting, the borderlands are fragile and at times perilous. He reminds us what is at stake along the border. Annerino knows both sides of the line and this book is exceptional. [ ]
- Viva Chocolate!
- By Marilyn Noble. Rio Nuevo Publishers. 80 pp. Index. . $12.95.
- Oh my, this sinful book is a chocolate lover's delight. Easier to take lately, since the latest health news is two Hershey's dark chocolate kisses a day for good health. How 'bout steaks rubbed with chile and cocoa powder and served with "Smokin' Hot Chile" made with helpings of cocoa, chile and chipotle? Or, one can wake up to Chocolate Chip Pecan Pancakes drizzled with warm chocolate syrup. Had enough? -- not until one tries a Grilled Chocolate-Peanut Butter Sandwich with a glass of milk. [ ]
