A Taos Mosaic gives you a deeper look into Taos' Indian customs and the modern art vibe during 1950-early 1970's lovingly told by long time resident & Taos Book Shop owner Claire Morrill. Fascinating insights into Indian culture and customs such as The December Time for Staying Still. Enjoyed Morrill's recollection of feisty encounters among locals including Taos socialite Mabel Dodge Luhan & friends DH Lawrence and his wife Frieda and their loyal assistant Brett.

My shelves of New Mexico books are only part of my collecting habit

A few years ago, at a bookshop in a, Massachusetts, I opened a copy of Claire Morrill’s A Taos Mosaic: Portrait of a New Mexico Village to discover that it was signed by the book’s photographer, Laura Gilpin, whose pictures of Diné people and Southwestern landscapes are highly prized. But there was also an inscription: To Fay and Lawrence, looking forward to many more pleasant Taos visits. My shelves of New Mexico books are only part of my collecting habit. My small home near Boston is filled with so many New Mexico crafts and souvenirs that my friends call it a shrine to New Mexico.

I thoroughly enjoyed this rather short but concise book of 176 pages which covers many aspects of Taos: the Indian culture, the Spanish culture and the Anglo elements including writers and artists. Somehow Ms. Morrill has captured the enchanting atmosphere of Taos by recording her impressions and interactions with the people there.

I thoroughly enjoyed this rather short but concise book of 176 pages which covers many aspects of Taos: the Indian culture, the Spanish culture and the Anglo elements including writers and artists. Written by the owner of a bookstore in Taos, Claire Morrill has recorded the milieu of Taos in the early and mid 20th Century by speaking from personal experience of the people she knows in Taos including three influential women: Mabel Dodge Luhan, Frieda Lawrence, and artist Dorothy Brett. Somehow Ms. Morrill has captured the enchanting atmosphere of Taos by recording her impressions and interactions with the people there. She includes brief histories of the Spanish conquest of the area, the unique history of Land Grants established by the Spanish and forcefully changed by the Anglos, the Indian rebellions, uprisings and wars, the Society of Taos Artists, the three year residency of D. H. Lawrence and his wife Frieda after which they traveled to France where Lawrence died of Tuberculosis. Frieda then returned to Taos to live out her life on the ranch which was given to her by Mabel Luhan. Morrill includes an informative chapter on "Taosiana," the books written in and about Taos which offer useful suggestions for further reading. This book, together with Willa Cather's "Death Comes to the Archbishop," and Mabel Dodge Luhan's "Winter in Taos" offer a great introduction to the unique and mysterious culture of Taos and Santa Fe area. Highly recommended.
