1929. With Illustrations. From the dust jacket: Charles F. Lummis was a native New-Englander and a graduate of Harvard. Some fifty years ago he walked to California, lived for years in an Indian Pueblo, rode the Southwest from side to side and explored it with a keen and understanding heart. He founded The Landmarks Club, the Southwest Museum, and the Sequoya League, and was knighted by the King of Spain for his researches in Spanish-American history. Americanist, author, and explorer, his contribution to the Southwest has been significant. Flowers of Our Lost Romance, completed only a few days before his death, is filled with unforgettable pictures of the West. The chapter headings include: Pioneer Transportation in America, The Virginal Mule-Tamer, The Trail of the Serpent, Indelible Spain, When the Stones Come to Life, and The Last of the Troubadours.
