The Myth of Santa Fe by Chris Wilson

CREATING A MODERN REGIONAL TRADITION

 

Review by Arthur Scott

 

   This book, The Myth of Santa Fe, Wilson, Chris, 1997, University of New Mexico Press; is to me the best and most well researched book detailing the transformation of Santa Fe from a small city with a declining population and a severe economic decline from the late eighteen hundreds to 1912 to a premier tourist destination in the 1990’s with little regard for its ongoing and past history.  The book is quite long. 410 pages and 215 illustrations although most are slightly larger than thumbnails. There are many before and after photographs. The research is impeccably documented by citations to innumerable old books, newspapers, and other archival material.

   I gained a lot of historical knowledge from reading this book. Even being a third generation Santa Fean, I had never given much thought to the ideas
