Description - Santa Fe and Taos by Mary L. Martin

Sophisticated and seductive, Santa Fe and Taos clearly illustrate why New Mexico is known as the "Land of Enchantment." The rugged landscape, diverse cultural traditions, and exceptional charm of these two unique destinations have lured explorers for hundreds of years. More than 200 postcards dating from 1905 to 1950 provide a visual tour of this intriguing and alluring area. Explore the Santa Fe Trail, The Palace of the Governors, La Fonda, the Bishop's Lodge, Loretto Chapel, and much more in the town of Santa Fe. Then move on with images of Taos Pueblo and Taos Mission, cowboys, Pueblo Indians and their adobe architecture, crafts and religious celebrations, charming burros, chili-covered walls, and desert flora. Approximate dates and values of the postcards make this a wonderful reference for collectors of these historic treasures as well. Santa Fe and Taos both come alive in all their glorious colors within this beautiful and informative book.
