Author: Eric Sloane
Publisher: Courier Corporation
In an extraordinary book that is also a rare autobiographical work, Eric Sloane shares his travel experiences during two trips he made from New York to his beloved Taos--in 1925 and again in 1960. The first time around, as a young man, he worked his way across America in a rickety Model T Ford, painting signs on bridges and barns to pay expenses. The story of that journey is recounted here by the revered "cracker-barrel philosopher" as he weaves his reminiscences in with an account of his journey to the New Mexican town 35 years later. Sloane offers his wry, heartfelt, and incisive reflections on America's rapidly changing landscapes and regional cultures, noting in both his charming commentary and his delightful pen-and-ink illustrations the roadside monuments he passed along the way: covered bridges in New Jersey, a "barn bridge" in Pennsylvania, early gas stations and grain elevators in the Midwest, panoramic views of the western landscape, and ultimately, views of Taos Pueblo, happily unchanged after more than a quarter of a century since the author's last visit. An immensely entertaining book, Return to Taos will delight anyone who enjoys reading about America's past and sees its artifacts as part of a vast repository of national treasures.

Author: Gui de Angulo
Gui de Angulo brings together in this book the complete Taos papers of the legendary linguist, Jaime de Angulo, which tell the story of his life in the 1920s Taos where he stayed with Mabel Dodge and her Indian husband Tony Luhan. Told with the anthropologist's keen eye for social detail, it is a true story about the interconnecting worlds of Indians, social scientists, writers and bohemians. Angulo wanted to learn more about the religious philosophy and customs of the Taos and other pueblo Indians and to record their languages. He gives vivid impressions of pueblo life, comparing their culture with that of the Achumawi, the California Indians with whom he had lived. His journals and letters reveal much about that anguished time when Burke, controversial chief of the Bureau of Indian affairs, was trying to outlaw ceremonials, while anthropologists and others were rallying to their defense. Here too is the story of Angulo's part in bringing Carl Jung to America to meet the Indians, whom Jung felt could help him in the development of his psychoanalytic theory. Angulo's observations of D.H. Lawrence are astute, and often humorous. He sometimes found Lawrence "deep and keen and delightful," but at other times "ridiculous as only an Englishman can be ridiculous." Included in these papers is The Witch, a romantic, gothic novella set in Big Sur, which Angulo wrote on the first Taos visit and read aloud one evening to Lawrence, the Luhans and their friends--to a not unmixed response.
