Cepillaba su largo pelo, lloraba y aullaba como gato atrapado, como alma perdida. Dice que vio a aquella mujer muchas veces justo antes de que alguien muriera.
Su madre era la partera del pueblo. Trabajaba en casa, cocinaba y limpiaba desde muy temprano hasta altas horas de la noche. Mi madre era la mayor de siete hijos, era una mujer del campo atrapada en un cuerpo de una mujer de ciudad. Cualquier tela o vestido viejo lo transformaba en una prenda para alguno de nosotros. Con su talento, era capaz de hacer cualquier cosa que se propusiera. De vez en cuando, llevaba trabajo de costura a casa para ganar unas monedas extras. Los vecinos confiaban y respetaban a mi madre por su gentileza.

Salazar was standing at the edge, the dawning of a new century. Embedded in the his imaginative story was loss. That story is transcribed below, followed by the original Spanish. New Mexico in [A Prophecy from ]. Spanish follows English translation. Fifty years after his death a New Mexican Hispano who died in New Mexico at the beginning of the twentieth century felt a desire to visit the land of his birth and of his death, the land of his share of suffering and joy, and he asked for and was given permission to journey to the land of the living, something that many other dead folk have done as writers of imaginary works, novelists and other respectable authorities relate.

His name and history from his time in life need not be mentioned, nor are they important here. Suffice to say, that in life he was a man of much learning and experience and that he knew the condition of his homeland well from to , the time in which he lived. He found many new towns and vast tracks of land under cultivation.

He also noted that all these new people had distinct features and were of a different race from those who had lived in these same places before. Only in remote and uncultivated places did he find villages and towns inhabited by the old settlers of the land. These had been tossed there, bit by bit by the wave of immigration of the new colonists. In general, his homeland did not seem to be richer nor more prosperous than in his own time, but there were many more people, and indications of misery and poverty could be seen in greater or lesser degree among most of them.
Absent were the large herds of cattle and flocks of sheep that were once seen in the countryside and, only once in a while, did one find small herds of animals on private lands.
In this way he traversed the county once called Taos and everywhere he observed the same changes in the character of the population. The Taos Valley was filled with dense population and several towns having the appearance of medium-size cities could be seen. The Pueblo Indians had entirely abandoned the traditions of their ancestors.

According to the information he was later given, Taos Valley had a population of , inhabitants and all were of different nationalities. The visitor did not ask, nor was he told more until he got to Santa Fe, the city where he had lived. There several surprises awaited him. He was astonished at not finding even a trace of what had been the ancient capital. Everything was so changed and the residents were new people who had come from elsewhere.

He learned that the descendants of the original settlers had been dispersed and had taken refuge in the remote villages and towns of the county and that another group of them lived in some dwellings a few miles from the city where they still managed to keep some of their ancient customs, but they kept to themselves and were completely apart from the general life of the rest of the people. He learned that it had been given that name because several influential Senators from the East hated the name New Mexico and, since they admired everything concerning the Indian tribes, they had fallen in love with the name Pujacante , which according to them, had a mysterious and ominous meaning related to the rituals and ceremonies of the Indians.
Because of this they were of the opinion that the name was highly original and very characteristic and on a par with the new state and, as they were the arbiters of this matter, they imposed the name on the new state so that the New Mexicans of old had no other name than that of Pujacantes. He was told that they had founded a new town near Belen. He also learned that when Santa Fe was removed as the capital city that the capital had been moved to Albuquerque but, in the wake of the damage caused by the river, it was moved to Americanoplis which was the new town established by the people of Albuquerque.
The whole of middle Rio Grande Valley was so crowded with people that it was estimated that from Albuquerque to the border there were no fewer than half a million inhabitants.
