Our Editor's Book, Tiffany Blue
Our editor, Patricia McCraw, has written a book titled Tiffany Blue. It is about the early days of Tiffany's® and its connection to New Mexico and the turquoise mines. Here is what best-selling author Tony Hillerman had to say about Tiffany Blue: "Anyone interested in New Mexico history, or history of the West in general, should not miss Pat McCraw's Tiffany Blue, a fascinating account of the very early days of turquoise mining. Much of it is told in the words of the immigrant Irishman who was one of the first in the game." Tiffany Blue covers the time period of New Mexico history that runs from 1882 to 1933. The Tiffany Blue story is told in real time by the people who were actually there.
