Summary
Millicent Rogers, though born into opulence and followed by the paparazzi, kept private many of her unique talents and skills. She loved books, she was a multi-linguist, and was involved in espionage during WWII, saving lives from the talons of Hitler. She created beautiful surroundings filling them with books, art, and fine furniture. She was well-known for her own sense of style and beauty, and loved many men though she kept her deepest love for her sons as far away from the public eye as possible At the end of her life Millicent Rogers lived in a more humble home in Taos than any of her other homes. In the hamlet that Taos was then, she surrounded herself with new multicultural friends, from artists and writers to laborers, supporting many of them. This book, with its many photographs, opens doors into Millicent's life that have been long obscured. Millicent's surviving son Arturo Peralta-Ramos II has written a poignant forward in tribute to his remarkable mother. Arturo and his brother Paul were good friends with Arthur Bachrach and the trio spent many hours exchanging stories and anecdotes, especially about Millicent
