About this title


Describes the history of old Spanish churches in New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and California, and discusses how they were built

From Library Journal:

This work captures the poignant elegance of North America's first religious architecture--the Franciscan adobe churches of New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and the great mission chain in California. These monuments of "freehand architecture" were constructed in a rugged environment by priests and Indians (largely women and children) with few traditional building materials. Two hundred photographs (100 in color) accompany Hall's historic and anecdote-laden text. Inside, the visual splendor and passion of local santeros , the painters and sculptors of religious images, are highlighted. Recommended for southwestern, architectural, and Hispanic folk art and life collections.
