Lynda A. Sanchez

Lynda A. Sánchez earned the 2007 Preservation Award recognizing her work in saving New Mexico’s Fort Stanton, a story she shares in her book Legacy of Honor, Tradition of Healing: Fort Stanton. She and her family live on a small ranch along the Bonito River in southern New Mexico. Her time in the Peace Corps in South America, her archaeological field work at Mesa Verde and in Mexico and Belize all guided her to the colorful mosaic of folk heroes, legends and the incredible history of the American Southwest. Sánchez is also an advocate for the preservation of our veterans’ legacy.
