These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside Alamo Ranch - A story of New Mexico:Look inside the book: Somewhat to the general surprise, the Grumbler made his bow to the hostess in evening clothes, and though not exuberantly Koshare, he was in an unwontedly gracious mood; partaking with polite zest of the stale chocolates, tough cookies, and flinty ginger snaps; munching long-baked Albert biscuit; serenely bolting puckery Oolong tea; and even handing the cups,-large and substantial ones, kindly furnished from their landlady's pantry,-and commending their solidity and size as far preferable to the Dresden and Japanese 'thimbles' commonly appearing on afternoon tea-tables. ...As it is not proposed to give this record of the doings of the 'New Koshare' the circumstantiality of a diary, the chronicler may be allowed to include the ensuing teas, shooting-matches, and all the lighter kosharean festivities in the one general and final statement, that they each came off duly and successfully; and leaving their details 'unhonored and unsung,' proceed to a more extended account of the Saturday evening entertainments,-as all members of the club were invited to contribute to these evenings, and it was expected that the Minister would, from the storehouse of his travelling experience, contribute liberally to their delectability; and that the Journalist (who naturally thought in paragraphs, and, like the fairy who 'spoke pearls,' conversed in exquisitely fashioned sentences) would supplement the papers of the Antiquary by his own brilliant talks. ...It was to tide over this trying epoch in his existence that 'Those Above,' according to tradition, made for the tribes that quaint 'Delight-Monger,' with whom we have already made acquaintance, who led them in their wanderings from the womb of Shipapu to the solid centre of their world; but, as has been already stated, this record, going back to an indefinite period of time, and having only the dubious authority of folk-lore, is only of traditional value.
