Mary Colter: Builder Upon the Red Earth Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An architect for the Santa Fe Railway and the Fred Harvey Company, Colter laid the groundwork for female architects who followed. Seven of her remarkable structures are preserved in Grand Canyon's historic district. This is her story.

Synopsis:

On the South Rim of the Grand Canyon are remarkable stone buildings which look as old as the canyon itself. Resembling the ancient structures left by the tribes that inhabited this region long before Columbus, they are the work of Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter, chief architect and decorator for the Fred Harvey Company from 1902 to 1948. Trained in San Francisco in the 1880's, Colter became a major exponent of the revival of southwestern cultural influence in architecture. This is the biography of an extraordinary woman. It will appeal to a variety of readers: those interested in the history of the Grand Canyon buildings, the Fred Harvey company, and the Santa Fe Railway, as well as those with an interest in architecture, interior design, Native American art, and women of accomplishment.
