GARY FILLMORE. Shadows on the Mesa: Artists of the Painted Desert and Beyond. Schiffer Books. 240 pages; hard cover $50; www.schifferbooks.com.

From 1909 until the late 1920s, the Wetherill-Colville Guest Ranch in Kayenta, Arizona, was the primary stopover for writers, geologists, archeologists, adventurers, and tourists exploring Monument Valley and the Tsegi Canyon ruins. Visiting artists included some of the most well known names in Southwestern art history. This beautifully produced volume includes over 200 color plates and 100 black and white photos and sketches of one the most iconic regions in the American West.
