El Delirio

By: Stark, Gregor and E. Catherine Rayne
Price: $19.95

School of American Research Press, 1998.
Richly illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs, El Delirio is a loving portrait of the remarkable Elizabeth White, one of the great women of the Southwest in a very small body. White was a passionate advocate for Pueblo Indian rights, an inspired patron and promoter of Indian art, and a dedicated community activist for the preservation of Santa Fe history. She was also a member of a fascinating circle of artists, writers, musicians, anthropologists, and archaeologists, whom she entertained lavishly at El Delirio (The Madness), the beautiful Santa Fe estate built by the White sisters in the 1920s.
