I've read most of Frank Water's non-fiction and like this, his last one, probably the best as it's the story of the Taos he personally knew during a fascinating time in its history. Memoirs are among my favorite books and this is a high ranking one for me. Waters writes of the artistic members of the Taos community as well as the energy that made it what it was. His books of the Hopi are still the best there are for their spiritual traditions.
Excellent accounts of Frank Waters's friendships with some of Taos's most famous residents, including Mabel Dodge Luhan and her husband, Tony Lujan, and the artists, Dorothy Brett, Nicolai Fechin, and Andrew Dasburg. Anyone who is interested in these people or in the author of "The Man Who Killed The Deer," "Masked Gods," and the "Book of the Hopi," will be interested in reading this book. I'm fortunate to have read it in Taos, where the spirit Waters writes about still lives.
