NY Times Best Seller's List for June/July

Leanne Brown has a hit on her hands. Her cookbook, Good and Cheap, available via PDF, has been downloaded more than 90,000 times in the first couple of weeks since she posted it on her website. But going viral isn’t the intent of this online effort, which Brown developed as the final project for her master's degree in food studies at New York University. Plenty of people may want to cook good food on the cheap, but Brown’s target audience is the many Americans who rely on food stamps to get by—living on just $4 a day. That’s why she’s raising money on Kickstarter to produce a print version of Good and Cheap.
Sense of Style
Tony Abeyta is no stranger to the Turquoise Gala and we are honored to have him back this year.
Beautiful is how best to describe Sherry McGraw's painting for the Turquoise Gala. Her stellar palette of colors is a showstopper!
Cabo Condo is a long-time favorite so you can soak in the sun instead of the winds blowing through Taos springs.
Two C's. You have to see the two wonderful New Mexican colchas in our sale. They are a must-have for any collector.
Arikara Dancers is the title of one of the two world-class photogravures in the sale by the greatest photographer of the American West -- Edward Curtis
Did we mention that we have two Edward Curtis photogravures. No western collection is complete without a Curtis!
A classic western Firearm is featured this year! If you want to own a piece of American history then consider this circa 1850 trade gun inset with a cast brass snake. These snake guns were the most highly prized of Indian trade guns on the frontier.
Gene Kloss did many iconic pieces but none is finer than the view of the Rocky Mountains that is in this sale. If you want a Kloss, this is a must-have! Come prepared to buy this one!
