Summary
"In New Mexico, Dorothea Lange and Arthur Rothstein revealed the heart-rending plight of Dust Bowl residents in Mills and covered relocation efforts at Bosque Farms. In Pie Town, Russell Lee discovered a stubborn group of homesteaders living a frontier life. John Collier, Jr.b7102 Southwestern Writers Collection., added another dimension to Lee's coverage of Hispanic villages in an unforgettable series on the eighteenth-century towns of Las Trampas and Peñasco. In addition to thorough research in the Library of Congress files, Nancy Wood has retraced the steps of the photographers and found the Hispanic villages, the Dust Bowl communities, and the frontier towns where they photographed. She has interviewed people who remember being photographed over forty years ago. Their recollections and the photographs of that time provide a vivid portrait of their struggles to survive. What began under the FSA as a project to garner support for New Deal legislation became a multifaceted portrait of a nation, showing the triumphant as well as the bitter aspects of the era. Roy Stryker had a clear idea that his file of photographs would live beyond the specific moment and applications for which it was intended. In this book, Nancy Wood ensures that longevity and provides both a moving human history of depression-era New Mexico and an updated look at the people and places"--Dust jacket flap
