PressestimmenThe illustrations are beautifully reproduced, and the book's three essays are intelligent, carefully researched, and elegantly presented. -- Roxana Robinson The Wilson Quarterly In her meticulous account, Lesley Poling-Kempes discusses the geophysical origins of this land of 'extremes and contrast,' analyzing the layered stone formations and matching them up with O'Keeffe's keen observations of red shales, sandshales and silt stones created 200 million years ago... Frederich W. Turner steps more intimately into O'Keeffe's preserve, discussing her eccentricities, her remoteness from others sharing the land ... and the mythology she did much to create... Once installed in New Mexico, though, she became an authentic new conquistador, he concludes, and entered her true final domain. -- Dore Ashton Times Literary Supplement
