The Myth of Santa Fe Chris Wilson 1997
The Myth of Santa Fe: Creating a Modern Regional Tradition. Chris Wilson, University of New Mexico Press, 1997.
A wave of publicity during the 1980s projected Santa Fe to the world as an exotic tourist destination--America's own Tahiti in the desert. The Myth of Santa Fe goes behind the romantic adobe facades and mass marketing stereotypes to tell the fascinating but little known story of how the city's alluring image was quite consciously created early in this century, primarily by Anglo-American newcomers.
