Over twenty years ago, Jim Belshaw compiled some of his newspaper columns for a book called ""Semi-Native"". As he is not a native New Mexican, Belshaw's wife, who is a native, decided he was entitled to that status. As Belshaw notes, 'Something about the place [New Mexico] gets inside of you and the next thing you know you've become a Semi-Native. I still am'. Belshaw has been a columnist for the ""Albuquerque Journal"" for nearly three decades, writing about the people who have shared a portion of their lives with him. Conversational in tone, some humorous and some tragic, these columns invite the reader to participate in the discussion. For this sequel to ""Semi-Native"", Belshaw returned to the columns he has written since that book appeared, selecting his favorites. He has arranged the stories into groupings dealing with his adopted state and hometown, friends (old and young) who have passed, and people and acquaintances with whom he can still commune.
