Reviews

In Historic Churches of New Mexico, the distinguished Latin Americanist Frank Graziano takes a deep dive into the history, design aesthetics, and cultural significance of New Mexico's adobe churches. Written with verve and deep sympathy for the heritage of the state's Native American and Hispanic peoples, this engaging book serves as a splendid introduction to the nation's most emotive vernacular architecture and the spiritual commitments that have shaped it. * Michael F. Brown, President of the School for Advanced Research, Santa Fe, New Mexico * Frank Graziano's moving prose elegy laments the seemingly inexorable decline of so many of New Mexico's historic churches. Rather than suggesting rosy alternatives, this penetrating study interrogates potential optimistic and pessimistic outcomes for these sacred spaces. This is also a deeply personal and revealing examination of practicing Catholics and clergy in the Hispanic and Native communities where these churches are located. * Rick Hendricks, State Historian of New Mexico *
