From the Jacket flap

“New Mexico’s first native Franciscan priest, Fray Angélico Chávez (1910-1996), is known as a prolific historian, a literary and artistic figure, and an intellectual.  The original essays collected here explore his wide-ranging cultural production: fiction, poetry,  architectural restoration, journalism, genealogy, translation, and painting and drawing.  Several essays discuss his approach to history, his archival research, and the way in which he re-centers ethnic identity in the prevalent Anglo-American master historical narrative.  Others examine how he used fiction to bring history alive and combined visual and verbal elements to enhance his narratives.  Two essays explore Chávez’s profession as a friar.  The collection ends with recollections by Thomas E. Chávez, historian and Fray Angélico’s nephew.”
