The San Marcos springs have flowed for around ten million years. In this ode to the river they form, Jim Kimmel brings us a picture of a watercourse brimming with life, past and present. Native, non-native, prehistoric, and modern-day plants, animals, and people have inhabited the river and its banks. Kimmel touches on them all with the affectionate and knowledgeable voice of one whose own life has been closely linked to the San Marcos. As readers journey with Kimmel from the river's headwater springs to its junction with the Guadalupe River, The San Marcos: A River's Story will capture the imagination and provide valuable information about the river and its crucial role in the ecological health of Texas. Original photographs by Jerry Touchstone Kimmel add a sense of the beauty and complexity of the river.

A comfortable book about San Marcos, from the time its minister/schoolteacher/store clerk/newspaper publisher was the most vocal man in town, to the city's growth to a population of over 50,000. There's little that's dull here.

"The subject matter of the San marcos Pass paintings is familiar. The simple geometrics--paralell lines, zigzaga, circles, dots, and grids--form the basis of art from the beginnings of human history. Some say these elements arise from experiences with altered states of consciousness. Deer, fish, birds, insects, amphibians, and humans appear in abstract and naturalistic forms. Others defy neat explanation." Description from the Introduction page 1.

San Marcos, one of the largest late prehistoric Pueblo settlements along the Rio Grande, was a significant social, political, and economic hub both before Spanish colonization and through the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. This volume provides the definitive record of a decade of archaeological investigations at San Marcos, ancestral home to Kewa (formerly Santo Domingo) and Cochiti descendants. The contributors address archaeological and historical background, artifact analysis, and population history. They explore possible changes in Pueblo social organization, examine population changes during the occupation, and delineate aspects of Pueblo/Spanish interaction that occur with Spaniards’ intrusion into the colony and especially the Galisteo Basin. Highlights include historical context, in-depth consideration of archaeological field and laboratory methods, compositional and stylistic analyses of the famed glaze-paint ceramics, analysis of flaked stone that includes obsidian hydration dating, and discussion of the beginnings of colonial metallurgy and protohistoric Pueblo population change.

In a bawdy, irreverent send-up of the literary scene, this riotous odyssey has blocked writer Eliot Morrison swept from New York with its agents, actresses, and "desperation panic states" to the seedy, one-grand Hotel San Marcos on the California coast, for a week-long writers' conference. While his fellow writers are driven by literary ambitions to savage one another's work and one another, Eliot finds himself at the center of a bizarre turn of events that culminates in senseless and absurd violence. Laying bare the lives and illusions of professional and would-be writers as well as the hangers-on who inhabit the literary world, this novel is sexy, outrageous, devastating, and satirical. It has a compassion for its characters whose parallel lives, propelled by ambition and disappointment, turn to collide head-on in fulfillment of relentless destiny.
