Trained at Vassar College and the Art League of New York City, Grant (1874-1948) enjoyed a successful career as a painter throughout her life, and also began a second career as a writer after moving to Taos in 1920. Originally published in 1934 by Press of the Pioneers, this text explores four centuries of Taos history, offering readers an introduction to the ancient village and its inhabitants. A facsimile of the original 1934 edition, the reprint includes a brief new introduction by Marcia Muth of Sunstone Press. Academic but accessible to the general reader.
