He is known for his novels and historical works about the American Southwest. Flight From Fiesta is set in Santa Fe in the mid-1950s. It is the story of an angry little rich girl, Elsie, who comes to Fiesta with her hedonistic alcoholic mother and her mother's art-collecting, fast-talking continental lover. In the novel, Waters seeks to relive the feeling of interconnectedness that characterized the Fiesta de Santa Fe of the 1940s and 1950s. The Frank Waters Foundation, founded in his name, strives to foster literary and artistic achievement in the Southwest United States. Your order receives my personal attention.
