We Came to Santa Fe is a collection of colorful stories from many of Santa Fe’s unique characters. From business professionals and artists to dancers, teachers, writers, gallery owners, publishers, poets, a former Santa Fe Opera director, actresses and a Peruvian Paso horse afficiando, the stories captivate the elements and way of life that draws people to this land. It is an accumulation of dreams, desires, needs and appetites that brought this group of people to make their homes in Santa Fe, New Mexico and its surrounding environs.
We Came to Santa Fe shares the charm, attraction and way of life that is found most often in what is lovingly referred to as the “City Different.” Those sharing their stories live, breathe, work and sleep in this unusual marvel, curiosity and jewel of a city where many distinct cultures are alive and well, managing to meld and work together in this place they call home. Contributors include Doug Coffin, Linda Durham, Mark Zaplin, Ali MacGraw, Nedra Matteucci, Charles Weber, Orlando Romero, Richard Gaddes, and many more interesting characters who found their way up or down the Santa Fe Trail.
