Taos: Landmarks and Legends by Bill Hemp, William H. Hemp

With dramatic pen and ink drawings and lively descriptive narrative, artist-writer Bill Hemp illuminates Taos's colorful landmarks and legends. From the verdant valley of the Taos-Tiwa cultures and their centuries old Pueblo, to the sky-lighted studios of Anglo artists Joseph Sharp and others, Hemp's pen captures the magical quality of this town that has been home to native peoples, Spanish explorers, writers, artists, and many others. His cast of colorful characters includes the magnetic Mabel Dodge Luhan, the mysterious Arthur Manby and the gregarious gambler and transport tycoon "Long" John Dunn. All taken together, Hemp's illustrated work creates a marvelous mosaic that comprises the landmarks and legends of Taos, New Mexico.
