Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Churches have played an integral role in the settlement and colonization of New Mexico. Indeed, it would impossible to write a history of the state that did not highlight their central importance. Annie Lux's Historic New Mexico Churches celebrates that connection by focusing on 30 houses of worship, from the earliest mission churches to a Pueblo Revival masterpiece of the 1940s. Daniel Nadelbuch's 100 full-color photographs reveal these impressive edifices in their varied splendor.
