This book is for anyone who has a passion for New Mexico letters, the American Southwest or the life and work of Jesse Nusbaum, one of America's leading archaeologists--a man who was lauded by Life Magazine with a cover story when he brought Mesa Verde out of the mire of time to make it living history. Nusbaum fought to preserve the integrity of a large section of southwestern America which otherwise would have been lost.

About the Author:

Rosemary L. Nusbaum was born and grew up in Marquette, Michigan and received her R.N. degree from University Hospital, Chicago. She moved to Santa Fe in 1932 and during World War II worked as a medical pathologist at Bruns General Hospital. She has a long involvement in the arts, studied sculpture and ceramics and her short stories have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies. Of her many honors and awards, she holds in great esteem her place as a member of ''Composer, Authors and Artists of America,'' and the Sophrosyne Award presented to her by the St. John's College Class of 1969. Her first full-length book, The City Different and The Palace, the story of the Palace of the Governors and its role in Santa Fe history, was also published by Sunstone Press.

Review:

''This is essentially a biography of Jesse Logan Nusbaum, one of the more important figures in the establishment and development of Mesa Verde National Park, as well as of a wide range of archeological and other activities in New Mexico. These memoirs were recorded by the wife of the subject, who preserved these reminiscences with a nice sense of their historicity.

Among many other accomplishments, Nusbaum was the second Superintendent of Mesa Verde National Park, establisher of many of the principles of administration which were developed there, and was the most influential figure in the establishment and implementation of the program of salvage archeology which has preserved so much of Southwestern prehistory by law requiring the cooperation of land developers and commercial contractors.

The book is full of engaging anecdotes about places and people known and obscure, as well as insights into very early motorcycling over very primitive roads, setting records for distances and speeds in cross-country cycling at and just after the turn of the century. Nusbaum was an expert photographer and made many of the definitive early records in the region. His accounts of the Penitentes are some of the earliest and best. He was active in the recording of the first Carnegie Institute of Washington explorations in Mexico and Guatemala. He was an authority on Spanish Colonial architecture and design, and he superintended the construction of the Art Museum of the Museum of New Mexico.

Jesse Nusbaum was a big man--physically and spiritually, 'dedicated to the sciences but by no means stodgy, with a keen sense of humor; a prankster but with a gift of humility.' Above all he was a complete man, and whatever went on in Santa Fe and the region in his time was likely to have been influenced by him.'' ----Hugo von Rodeck Jr., P.M., Denver Westerners ROUNDUP

''Tierra Dulce is the title of a fascinating book by Rosemary Nusbaum, published by Sunstone Press, Santa Fe. Contents are the author's late husband Jesse Nusbaum's reminiscences. Most of the many photographs illustrating the volume are by Jesse, who was an avid photographer.

Scholar, lecturer, teacher, author and archaeologist, Nusbaum served as a public servant in devoting much time to the National Park Service. He was director of the Museum of Anthropology, Santa Fe, superintendent of construction for the Museum of Fine Arts, and was for many years with the State Museum.

The book is made up of four parts: 'The Early Years,' 'The Deeper Song,' 'The Ancient City,' and 'The Old Time,' each composed of a number of subjects with captions. A native of Colorado, Jesse spent his childhood and college years in Greeley. He became the youngest faculty member at the Las Vegas, New Mexico Normal School, followed by work in archaeology at Santa Fe with Edgar L. Hewett, first director of the Museum of New Mexico.

There are memories of the Chili Line narrow gauge train, Penitentes, Hewett, John D. Rockefeller Jr., who was interested in assisting with promotion of a cultural center in Santa Fe, and Sylvanus Morley. Among amusing elements is the story of 'Bryan Boru Dunn and the Badger.' Artists Maurice Stern, Mabel Dodge Luhan, D.H. and Frieda Lawrence, and Dr. D.P. Martin appear under the caption, 'Of Taos and Amigos.' The Honorable Frank Springer and the 'Art Museum' are given prominence. In 'Early Visits to Mesa Verde,' where he was for many years superintendent and archaeologist, Nusbaum tells of early visits. The late Chapman Ballard of Taos is credited with having been one of the first to see the Mesa Verde ruins. Under 'Salvage,' Nusbaum tells about his numerous appeals to Congressmen in an attempt to administer the Antiques Act and how it led to a most 'gratifying experience,' shared not only by himself but by many others 'who cooperated in the consuming effort' in 1950.'' ----Regina Cooke, The Taos News

''What a delightful book! Reading it is like visiting a favorite uncle who is also a great storyteller with a sense of humor and a feeling for history. Now whether or not you believe all the facts in the stories is another matter but if you enjoy interesting stories combined with a bit of gossip, this is your book. There are anecdotes about such prominent Southwesterners as Edgar L. Hewett, Mabel Dodge Luhan, Sylvanus Morley and others. Considerable information is given about Mesa Verde and about early archaeological work. The photographs are excellent and have never before been published. These are candid reminiscences, some of which were taped by Mrs. Nusbaum. There is a bibliography.'' ----Marcia Muth, ''Book Chat,'' Enchantment
