Its wealth of ancient architecture has made the American Southwest a place where time stands still. Pueblos, kivas, mission churches: architect Trent Sanford has captured the grace and beauty of dozens of sites, many of them largely untouched by time and easily accessible by the public. Encompassing the architecture of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, these pages cover the time of prehistoric Indians on through the coming of Spanish explorers and into the twentieth century. First published in 1950, the book includes more than one hundred photographs and maps, as well as descriptive lists of missions and pueblos in the region. For history buffs and tourists alike, here is a warm-hearted introduction to the many people whose enduring traditions-and architecture-have shaped the southwestern landscape over hundreds of years. Here, too, is a simple, easy-to-use guide to one of the world's top travel destinations.
