This is the note I received from my friend, Slim Randles today and I just had to share.
"Home Country," a collection of the best newspaper columns from the first five years, was awarded the New Mexico/Arizona Book Award November 16.
The column is written by Slim Randles, of Albuquerque, and the book was published by Rio Grande Books, also of Albuquerque.
Since the column's inception almost seven years ago, it is now featured in 265 papers in 44 states, with more than 2.2 million readers.
Slim has been so gracious to share his columns here, I wanted to let everyone know.
