James Early, a professor emeritus at Southern Methodist University is an acknowledged expert in the field of architecture who has penned several works in that area. For this reader 'Presidio, Mission, and Pueblo' is his finest. It is a fitting chronicle and tribute to the architectural accomplishments of the American Southwest. Richly illustrated and comprehensive this volume includes Florida, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. Structures receiving a close look are varied - there's a stone fort in St. Augustine, buildings surrounding the plaza in the French Quarter of New Orleans, churches resembling pueblos in New Mexico, and stone churches found in Texas, Arizona, and California. Thorough to the nth degree Early discusses the social, political, and economic contexts in which these structures were built. 'Presidio, Mission, and Pueblo' is an invaluable resource for scholars and architectural historians.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
