Pablita Velarde – In Her Own Words” written by Dr. Shelby Tisdale

Helen Hardin – A Straight Line Curved” written by Kate Nelson

Teaching My Spirit To Fly”  memoirs by Margarete Bagshaw


These are not art books or coffee table books, but rather, more academic, life stories with family photos and some artwork. 

There’s lots of background information, comedic stories, and just the right amount of intrigue and scandal!
