The Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth, Texas, 1986. 336 pp., 9¾x12½". Now out-of-print, this is a stunning tribute to the life of Laura Gilpin (1891-1979), one of the preeminent chroniclers of life in the American Southwest. Designed by Eleanor Caponigro with tri-tone reproductions, this retrospective monograph is the first major study of Gilpin's life and work. When published, Martha A. Sandweiss was the curator of the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, which houses the Gilpin archives. She is currently professor of American studies and history at Amherst College. The publication of this book coincided with a major exhibition in 1986. Signed by Martha Sandweiss

The Rio Grande, river of destiny; an interpretation of the river, the land, and the people by Laura Gilpin( Book )

5 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Rio Grande: River of Destiny, is a monumental study of the Rio Grande and the people along its banks: "Near the once-fabulous, now-ghost town of Creede, Colorado, flow the springs and the trickles of melting snow which make the Rio Grande. Here at 14,000 feet, is born a river which irrigates 1,751,700 acres of farmland in the United States and Mexico. In the course of its violent, precipitous, meandering, laze descent to the Gulf of Mexico 1800 miles away, the Rio Grande is beauty and history and legend and economics and social problems - a touchstone river of American life, a river of destiny indeed." -- Excerpt from Book Jacket

The pueblos : a camera chronicle by Laura Gilpin( Book )

7 editions published in 1941 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only in recent yeas have we begun to realize the thrilling and amazing history of our great Southwest that our archaeologists are daily unfolding for us--a history "old as Egypt." The basket maker phase of southwestern civilization is believed to have begun at approximately the birth of Christ. The Pueblo culture which followed, continued through a period of some twelve centuries, including the classical period of pueblo and cliff dwellers, its breaking down and decadence after the great drought at the end of the thirteenth century, and the pueblo life of the post-Spanish times to the present day. The remains of the homes of these people are found on mountain tops, in the side of almost inaccessible cliffs, in giant apartment houses eight hundred feet long and five stories high, and in valley villages similar to the contemporary pueblos. Here is the result of many years of travel and exploration of this sector of the United States by one of America's leading photographers. The purpose of this series of pictures and the accompanying text is to present a visual impression of the homes of these ancient peoples and the country in which they lived, together with a glimpse of their present day descendants. It should prove to be a fascinating guide for those who wish to visit the southwest by car, plane, train, horseback, or in an armchair beside the fireplace.--From jacket flap
