“Both Santa Fe and Taos are well known as important twentieth-century American art colonies. However, their fame rests more upon the reputations of resident and visiting artists that the contributions of the writers, playwrights and poets—notable among them D. H. Lawrence, Willa Cather, Robert Frost, Thornton Wilder, Carl Sandburg, John Galsworthy, Sinclair Lewis and Edna St. Vincent Millay—on the writers who followed Alice Corbin Henderson to Santa Fe and Mabel Dodge Luhan to Taos after 1916, and who later sought the company of Witter Bynner, Mary Austin and Haniel Long—this book complements the more extensive literature on ‘Artistic New Mexico.’”
