Author Samuel Lewis Gray was born in El Paso, Texas in 1911, and was raised on his grandfather’s farm until the age of 15.  He then moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico.  He spent summer vacations working on government survey projects in New Mexico and Arizona. 

It was during these years that Sam became familiar with most of the Southwest Indian pueblos and tribes, and developed what was to become a lifelong interest and study of their arts and crafts.
