The states of the American southwest have a long and fascinating history. New Mexico is known for its spectacular mountains, red canyons, glistening white sands, and limestone caverns. Once known as “Indian Territory,” Oklahoma has the nation's second-greatest Native American population. Today the state is a twenty-first century leader in the fields of technology, energy, and space. By area, Texas is the largest of the 48 contiguous states, and has a history that is as oversized as its reputation. This book in the LET'S EXPLORE THE STATES series provides information about these three intriguing states, from their geography, history, and government to their economy, population demographics, and major cities.
