Los Luceros

New Mexico's Morning Star

Michael Wallis, Author
Gene Peach, Photographer

Michael Wallis weaves the complex story of Los Luceros throughout the larger context of northern New Mexico history, from the earliest human inhabitants to the present day, introducing its past occupiers, owners, and visitors, including Spanish and American soldiers and cavalrymen. During Mary Cabot Wheelwright’s long reign at Los Luceros, it was visited by New Mexico’s prominent writers, artists, and art patrons, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Mabel Dodge Luhan, and D.H. Lawrence. During the past decade, the property was acquired by the State of New Mexico to be managed by New Mexico Historic Sites as a living museum.
