Jonathan employs a striking contemporary visual expression to allow us a candid view into the intimate communal life of Taos Pueblo as it was long ago. His charming primitive style, love of vivid color, and strong use of space are distinctive of his work. His paintings are animated, open, and warmly inviting, revealing the enchanting serenity and gracefulness of life lived close to nature. Jonathan is also inspired by his mother, who was a well-known artist herself, and by his strong connection to the private spiritual life of his pueblo community.As appealing as this rich pastoral world is, it is vanishing quickly, even in Jonathan s lifetime. He is committed, therefore, to preserving his cultural heritage as best he can through his paintings, faithful as they are to both the timeless and the momentary. Thus he gives to his children and to all of us a remarkable record of a native lifestyle, intimately known and nostalgically recalled. (Taos Talking Pictures Official Program 1995)

This is one of the greatest books I have ever read. The author is incredibly talented, being able to build bridges with his unique combination of great story-telling ability along with beautifully crafted paintings, one page perfectly balancing its opposite page, the written word balanced by a visualization of the same reality. The historical is juxtaposed to the contemporary, and it is done in such a way that the appeal of the book spans many generations, both quite young and quite old, and every age in between. This is a tale of a unique Native American culture and people, yet it connects with a more universal human experience, touching on the childhoods of every one of us, of our own family, of our own community, of our own experience of nature, and of our personal memory and dreams of the past and the future. This book is truly a celebration of the Native American and of the universal, and it should prove inspirational to many for many years to come.

This is a wonderful book that captures the essence of the Taos Pueblo and its people. Beautiful paintings create a visionary feel to the work, and Mr. Warmday stays true to the spirit throughout.

I was excited by the cover and hoping to get some interesting Taos/ Santa Fe landscapes and exciting sky and mountainous paintings. This book is sweet for the stories and in my opinion is for young people. The stories could be rich with whimsical paintings, but we seem to see the same woman or women carrying baskets on their heads. This is a great book to read to your child who may want to know more about the south West. great for kids.

Anyone who ever has been to Taos Pueblo will feel a wave of nostalgia upon seeing Jonathan Warm Day's paintings - and those who haven't been there will want to go. Accompanied by an evocative text written by the artist, each painting depicts an aspect of pueblo life, following the calendar through the four seasons. Rich in color and texture, Jonathan's paintings draw the viewer into the scene. One can almost hear the stream as it ripples through the pueblo, smell the burning pinon, taste the hot bread fresh from a traditional horno oven. This is the work of an artist deeply connected with his subject, and his affection for Taos Pueblo is apparent in every brush stroke, every word.
