The Land of Poco Tiempo
Charles F. Lummis's The Land of Poco Tiempo is the story of New Mexico as Lummis found it when he moved to the territory in 1888 to recover his health. As Lummis translates the Spanish title, “poco tiempo” means “pretty soon”. The phrase expresses the lack of haste in the lives of the area's inhabitants.
