Seeking D.H. Lawrence

Judy and I visited Taos and Abiquiu, New Mexico earlier this month. I wrote about the importance of the tiny community of Abiquiu in the history of the West for this week’s history column in The Daily Sentinel.

But we also visited other interesting sites. This is the memorial that Frieda Lawrence built for her deceased husband, D.H. Lawrence, at the ranch they stayed at and Frieda later owned outside ofLawrence mem Taos. Some say Frieda was the inspiration for Lawrence’s book, “Lady Chatterly’s Lover.”
