Lucien Maxwell, with wife Luz Beaubien, back in 1870, owned almost two million acres of land along the Santa Fe Trail in northeastern New Mexico. Even today, stories are told about the man who welcomed soldiers, traders, and preachers, rich, poor, stranger, and friend to his table. Maxwell sought greater rewards than gold, risking his life many times over to be the man he wanted to be.
