One thought on “Acoma

  1. Elaine Cougler

    Acoma by Lana M Harrigan is another of those bargain bin treasures What a great read it is with love, adventure, hate, greed, cruelty and tenderness oh, and a little incest thrown in This was a great book about New Mexico from 1597 1620 or so Fascinating
