With a combination of reverence and humor, Panther-Yates takes us on a tour of the Four Corners´ world-renowned - and lesser known - ancient sites. Originally published in the Santa Fe Sun-News, these columns testify to New Mexico´s undeniable power and mystery. In addition to the usual Native American dances, kiva mysteries and petroglyphs, the author introduces us to the offbeat spiritualities of the Muslim-like Penitentes of Abiquiu, Chimayo´s santeros and a teaching coven of witches in Taos. We visit a Sikh temple, study the Phoenician Hebrew Ten Commandments Stone in Los Lunas and explore the hippie nirvana of Santa Fe. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rich Crankshaw.

James Dean to Hopper: ´´I saw what you did today. Today you were great.´´ Jack Nicholson to Hopper: ´´We´re geniuses, you know that? Isn´t it great to be a genius?´´ The chopper-riding hippie outlaw in Easy Rider. The prophetic madman in the jungle in Apocalypse Now. The terrifying psychopath in Blue Velvet. The kid gone wrong in Rebel Without a Cause. The actor taken under the wing of James Dean who longed to be the next Orson Welles. The hell-raising director who revolutionized Hollywood. An enigmatic man from Dodge City, Kansas, on an endless quest to realize the American Dream. Dennis Hopper has been described as a rebel, an icon, an addict plagued by demons, and one of the most important champions of the pop-art movement. Friend to Warhol, muse to David Lynch, mentor to Sean Penn, champion of Ice-T, Dennis Hopper built a career that was a half-century of rebellion waged at the edge of American popular culture. Tom Folsom´s Hopper is a wild ride through Dennis´s many lives. Featuring hundreds of interviews with Hopper´s fellow actors, artists, musicians, and residents of Taos, New Mexico (where he spent much of his most manic time), as well as his ex-wives and many other people who knew him, Hopper takes you on an extraordinary - and sometimes troubling - journey. From Dennis´s early days with his grandparents on a dusty farm in Kansas, where he watched trains go by on their way to Los Angeles, to his formative time in Hollywood as one of a bright new crop of actors straddling the edge of the studio system, to the rebellious 1960s and the start of the independent film movement, to the drug-addled 1970s and beyond, when Hopper staged one of the greatest Hollywood comebacks of all time - Tom Folsom has crafted a biography as unconventional as Dennis Hopper himself. 1.
