Book review

One of the oldest Native American settlements in the United States is the Taos Pueblo in New Mexico. After the Mexican War ended in 1848 there was increased interest in the Taos Indians who were now part of the new Territory under American rule. Anthropologists and historians came to the area to study and when possible to record what they heard and saw. The Taos Indians were, however, often reluctant to share information with strangers. They wanted to be able to maintain their traditional way of life. Some people that they knew and trusted were welcome to hear the stories of their history and culture. Blanche Grant, who made her home in Taos, was one of those friends they knew that would tell the true stories. She also reminded them that the written word would be a source of information for their descendants. While the language and expressions that were used by Grant might not fall well upon the ears of the present reader, her account is an important historical document and an accurate telling things as they were when she wrote this book in 1925.
