Sister Blandina. of an Italian immigrant family knew from her childhood that she wanted to be a Sister of Charity. This book is a series of letters, written to her sister over a long period of time. She apologizes that she never had time to edit the letters. She was sent to several various locations in SW USA when it had been recently been annexed from Mexico. Although I am far from being Catholic, one has to admire her devotion and commitment to the poor, sick, and the war-like Apaches. She was very distressed that the cash given by the government to the Indian agents was mostly wasted by graft and poor attitude towards the Indians. The Sisters of Charity on the other hand started schools and hospital and did more amazing on a little budget than all the cash place in the hands of the Indian agents.
A remarkable small known tale of and by a nun, sent to Trinidad Colorado in the 1870s. She was sent alone, a reflection of her superiors’ trust in her abilities. She was 22, and had a clear sense of her lack of knowledge. She occasionally says she was afraid, but she did whatever it took to obtain schools, health care facilities, whatever it took.
Because it is a diary written by Sister Blandina, it sometimes seemed a small one-person. The action was at the time of Billy the Child and other 1800s personages. Santa Fe and Albuquerque were infant cities. Schools, of any kind were not widely available to any but the most wealthy. Sister and her fellow nuns were very involved, not only with schools but also hospitals. I truly enjoyed reading her acc of so a lot of instances where her power lay in her ability to read a situation and act without regard to politics, money, and self-gain. She treated everyone with dignity.
This book is a special examination of Colorado and Fresh Mexican history through the eyes, prejudices and religions beliefs of a dedicated Sister of Mercy. She knew a lot of historical figures from Archbishop Lamy to Billy the Child as she became an historic figure herself, building schools, medical care and musical programs with small in the method of money. Sister Blandina's twenty year journal of letters to her sister is filled with intriguing political maneuverings, tales of discrimination and exploitation of "natives," both Indian and Mexican, as well as her unique bonus of calling on the generosity of others. A rare and useful look at history in the making.
Amazing, amazing. Just a amazing read about a amazing person. And to throw in the references to Billy the Child was extremely interesting as in to see how a Godly woman interacted with an infamous person. But there is so much more than that, her accomplishments and what a person will stand for and ensure occurs.
What a woman! Allow us, however contrived, place aside the theology of her life work and focus on her as a person of extraordinary achievement as a "community organizer." She got things done such as schools and hospitals in a frontier environment. I test to imagine what it must have been like to interact with someone who was so focused and determined. I rather think that she was not a difficult person but someone who was able to ingratiate herself with others and obtain them to agree to her requests. On her theology, I want I could rely upon a faith such as her faith with such confidence. Mine pales beside her reliance upon a higher being.
I like early pioneer and frontier stories. I seek out those written by women and this one did not disappoint. The language was quite various than I am used to but that is due to earlier times and the fact that she was a devout Catholic nun. This is a reminder of the times in which this story took put and the authenticity of the journal. Enjoy.
This handsome, well-designed book has a lot of pictures of buildings -- attractive pictures, documentary pictures, artistic pictures, quaint pictures, snapshot-y pictures, and historically significant pictures. However, what struck me about it was the sense of community that emanates from this book. This isn't a book about architcture. Ultimately, this is a book about a put and about the people who lived there.
I visited Santa Fe 20 years ago and was charmed by the city, enough so that I moved here and have created it my home. I hold meeting other people with the same what a pleasure it is to search this beautifully photographed love song to Santa Fe! The historical images are fascinating. I recognize some of the spots, but a lot of locations have changed so much. The nice thing is that Santa Fe, while growing and changing, retains is charm and its easygoing is book is a treasure.
I recently moved to Santa Fe and was looking for some ideas on creative landscaping. The book is lovely and just filled with bright and colourful pictures, as well as amazing stories of these gardens. You will not see a bunch of formal gardens here in Santa Fe because the soil is horrendous and the price of water could easily bankrupt a homeowner. I live on two acres and planted over a hundred daylily's and the wild rabbits ate every single one of them, even the ones in pots. I would look out the window and see them sitting in the pots chowing on my attractive lily's until they were level with the dirt. I thought i was being intelligent with deer resistant plants, HA! The rabbits jump over my fence and also dig under my fence. I may only be able to see gardens like the ones in this book when I go to city or at a nursery.
Santa Fe is a beautiful tough put to garden. At 7,000 feet, the growing season is short, winds are high, and a five-year drought has created watering your garden politically vertheless, serious gardeners persevere, and some of the better results are documented here. It helps to be rich, to have a personal well, to have a gardener -- best if you have all three. The color image reproductions here are simply splendid. The text ranges from OK to beautiful amazing (but who buys flower-porn for the text?) Recommended for gardening and Santa Fe fans, who will surely drool over the lovely gardens, homes and art so beautifully portrayed here.Happy gardening,Peter D. TillmanSanta Fe
The photographs, in The Secret Gardens of Santa Fe, offer a glympse of a very unique put in the western states. Sydney Leblanc does a fine--brief--job descibing the history of Santa Fe, and the reasons the gardens of this special zone do so well. Charles Mann has the touch when it comes to photography. He captures the mystery, the spectacular colors and design, and the fabulous art that adorns a lot of of the gardens. A terrific book that makes one wish to visit Fresh Mexico, and see for one's self the magic of the high desert.
This is a attractive book for artists and gardeners. Unbelievable color combinations in landscapes & hardscapes, all accented with inspiring art pieces. Amazing text but...the images say it all! (No offense to the author, I know writing is hard work.)
This is a attractive book! I am designing a garden in Australia, this has given me so a lot of ideas, from plant selection, colours, points of view and interest. Incorporating modern art and traditional building ideas. I hope you have fun this too!
This is a unbelievable collection of some of the best resipes from Sante Fe, NM restaurants written by one of my favorite foodies. This is not just another litany of green chile dishes, but a literary tour of the culinary side of Santa Fe. I reccomend you have fun it with a lovely bottle of wine.
is not appropriate for Anne Hillerman. She has written a review of her own book, "Santa Fe Flavors", and gives herself 5 stars. I search it disingenuous for the author to rate her own book (she also did so with another book she has written) but maybe she's not aware of Amazon "protocol" which discourages author-reviews.Anyway, I will give her small, yellow book 5 stars. (I'm entitled!). She has place out a tutorial to Santa Fe restaurants and recipes that is a amazing compilation of differently rated Santa Fe restaurants. From the expensive - and oft-touted - SantaCafe, Geronimo, and Coyote Cafe to local favorites like Tecolote, Harry's Roadhouse, Andiamo, and The Pantry, Hillerman takes the eater-reader-cook on an expansive tour of Santa Fe cuisine. I liked the broad-based sampling of the "real" Santa Fe - the restaurants off-the-beaten-track that most tourists never hear about and therefore never sample. It's a amazing small book, and now, if we can just stop Hillerman from reviewing her own books...
One of the best books with the most comprehensive image collections of historic and authentic adobe e description was very accurate and the price ridiculously low for a virtual visual library in one volume. Should be in every serious collection of info dealing with North Rio Grande Valley architecture. I have two of these in my collection and reference them constantly for building detail information. the Seth sisters really place together an outstanding book!
This is a must-have for anyone with a serious interest in adobe architecture and traditional interiors in the Southwest. If you are looking for beautiful pictures of the kind found in glossy magazines, look elsewhere.
It's so sad that most of the images are black and white, which deletes the eye candy appeal a decor book should have...very disappointing...this could have been a very nice decor book if they would have realized in this time and age, it should be in color.
I liked the pictures but they should have been in color. Most of the pictures were black & white. I think the whole most unbelievable thing about Southwest decorating is the colors. Otherwise I would have rated it much higher.
I was expecting a beautiful coffee table book about the design styles common to the South West style and what I got was so very much e authors cover both the culture and history of the indigenous people who first developed what we now know as the South West style as well as the development and evolution of the style overall. The go into the techniques used in the designing and building and provide detailed descriptions and diagrams showing things such as fireplace designs, tile designs, everything that goes into these buildings. For all the technical info given the book never felt bogged down or in fact overly technical and you can easily go back and forth through out the book to pick out some fresh detail you missed before without loosing track of where you are in the book.And I loved their use of photographs, most of them are in black and white but that is no detraction since most of them are depicting older houses and designs showing both how the style has evolved and yet have also stayed the same and are just attractive and fascinating to look at both artistically and from a historical is is a attractive and fascinating book that gave me a fresh appreciation for this style of building and the climate and people who developed it.
Any architect or serious interior decorator exploring, or deeply into, the southwestern style will not be disappointed with this book. It is filled with hundreds of images of interior and exterior features, including wide-angle views encompassing entire rooms, showing southwest fine art and artifacts in a domestic context. Don't be surprised that most of the images are black and white--although there are tons of color images too. Instead, appreciate the play of light and shadow that finely crafted adobe structures have at their command. Black and white images present this in high contrast. But don't allow the images overshadow the text that will provide an education to adobe architects of all levels. Anyone iiving in a real adobe, and wants to follow a classic southwest theme, will search lots of inspiration--and then the hunt will be on to search the kind of indigenous southwest decor seen here.
We used this tutorial for Santa Fe and Albuquerque. The info on the restaurants was helpful, if limited to a choice few for each area. Restaurants are listed first by area, then types of meal with one category being healthy food. This was unique. While we found the coverage of attractions to be useful, there was less history than I would have liked for some of the historic websites we visited such as the Bandelier National Monument. I had to google it to search out what Indians had lived there in the caves. There is a lot of info on hiking and outdoor activities if you like that kind of activity.
I used this book on a latest trip to Northern Fresh Mexico and found it very interesting and helpful. It has beautiful amazing small maps of downtown Santa Fe and Taos that support you obtain oriented for walking around. The entry times and prices for museums were generally accurate and useful for planning.
I liked it and it was actually really cool despite the haters. I would have given it 5 ⭐s if it had more features though. Like a mini android game or something. Other than that, the only thing I can say is that there are a lot of ads. They pop up every few seconds and some are innapropriate. Especially for children.
Uh, be a bit closer santa! Chidren wanna see you and ms claus. Earning persents each day, In every sepail way. Oh santa please obey, from the words I say. Tis the season for some jollyness and hollyness, and mitsletoeness. You are lobed by a lot of children, santa. Come here every weekend.
this is stupid it says Santa is already on his method and is in Norfolk Island, Australia, where it is currently 1.38pm on Christmas eve... why would Santa be delivering presents then? the creators of this need to do more research before creating as like this
