Stanley Crawford is one of our favorite New Mexican authors because he represents so many of us. He is a farmer, a writer, a philosopher and sometimes architect. He is an explorer, and he shares his experiences in such a real way that you feel like you've been right there with him all along. Tag along on this exciting journey through a New Mexican acequia and find out what it takes to become the Mayordomo. A must read for anyone interested in agriculture, community, and water rights. Irrigation ditches are the lifelines of agriculture and daily life in rural New Mexico. This award-winning account of the author's experience as a mayordomo, or ditch boss, is the first record of the life of an acequia by a community participant.
