Explorations in Sights and Sounds
This Is About Vision: Interviews with Southwestern Writers is a compilation of sixteen interviews. The writers are ordered chronologically by date of birth, and there is a strong sense of movement from older ideas about the Southwest represented by authors such as Frank Waters to the development of new cultural values and ideas with younger writers like Rudolfo Anaya and Luci Tapahonso. Each of the interviews is prefaced by biographic information as well as a selected bibliography. Crawford's introduction to the book is thorough and provides a "map" or guide to the thematic development of the interviews.
