xx, 187 pages : illustrations; 27 cm
  • "Who more than the Southwesterners who've boldly claimed their home under the same tornado skies could have more cause to celebrate the millennium? And a celebration is exactly what Neugebauer and McDonald have forged in the historic photographs and poems they've paired to tell the story of settlement and so much more."--BOOK JACKET.
  • "From the Southwest Collection's bounty of more than 500,000 photographs, Janet Neugebauer has selected eighty-three that signify those needs basic to all humankind: food, clothing, shelter, government, recreation, and spirituality."--BOOK JACKET. "McDonald's new and selected poems connect to the moments in time that the photographs preserve, but evoke stories that focus on the scope and quality of life both then and in the century since ranching and farming came to the region."--BOOK JACKET.
