Paperback, 112 pages

My Town is a collection of poems, first-person narratives, and photographs that describe growing up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, during the 1940s, '50s, and '60s. The United States was immersed in the Cold War, and Albuquerque was a center of military activity and espionage: the first atomic bomb was built just to the north (Los Alamos) and tested just to the south (Alamogordo). Native Americans and Mexican Americans made up much of the population. Randall, a young middle-class white girl from the east and a natural radical, casts a keen eye on the evolution of race relations and gender expectations, and on the impact of modernity on the New Mexico landscape.
