About this product
- DescriptionOutlaws and Outcasts. They lay undisturbed and forgotten for almost a century--until a backhoe driver digging for gravel made a gruesome discovery. A hastily-assembled group of students, guided by an intellectually curious professor, had only one week to document the unearthing of the large, 19th century graveyard. Who was buried in those unmarked graves? What had they done to be cast out from society? Filled with stories of early outlaws and fascinating historical insights, Outlaws and Outcasts chronicles a spellbinding and little-kwn saga from New Mexico. For those who love history, archaeology, or quirky stories from the Land of Enchantment, this book is an intriguing summary of what occurred in Las Vegas, New Mexico in 1972. Outlaws and Outcasts: The Lost Cemetery of Las Vegas, New Mexico recounts the accidental unearthing of graves in a gravel pit. Included in the narrative are examinations of historical burial practices and customs, and a search through the scarce literature on events specific to the existence of the cemetery.
- Author BiographyEllen Rippel became interested in the history and culture of New Mexico after her arrival in the state in 1959 from Long Island, New York. While trying to balance working, raising a large family and pursuing a college education, she wrote the original document for Outlaws and Outcasts in 1979 as a master's thesis in history for Highlands University in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Her uneasiness at the prospects for gainful employment using her degree in history led to a second MA in guidance and counseling, facilitating her career as a therapist in the New Mexico substance-abuse field, and as Executive Director of a Kansas disability agency until her retirement in 1998. Now an historical artifact in her own right and hobbled by an undependable knee, she continues to pursue writing, photography, rock hounding, bird watching, and pottery-making in Socorro, New Mexico.
