X'se tagħmel

On this two-hour walking tour, we’ll explore how author Willa Cather was inspired to write her "best book" (her words), "Death Comes for the Archbishop" by retracing her steps through Santa Fe in 1925 and 1926.

We'll gather at the Plaza opposite La Fonda, where Cather and her partner Edith Lewis stayed during their visits. Cather has become an LGBTQ+ icon since the publication of her letters in 2011, and during this experience we will read from her letters, interviews, and articles, in addition to seeing historic footage of Santa Fe.

Our walking route covers about 1.5 miles, mostly on sidewalks, but also climbs a hill to the Cross of the Martyrs with its outstanding view of the city below. During our time together, we'll explore aspects of the novel, such as Kit Carson, Padre Antonio José Martínez, and of course Archbishop Jean-Baptiste Lamy, New Mexico's first Catholic archbishop and the real-life inspiration for the fictional Bishop Latour in Cather's book. We will learn about Sister Blandina Segale who helped set up a hospital in Lamy's house, and visit the last remnant of Lamy's six-acre garden behind the St. Francis Cathedral in the peaceful Stations of the Cross Prayer Garden.

Whether you are a local or a visitor, you will see Santa Fe in an entirely different light. And you may well find yourself part of the community known as "Cather People."

Hi - I'm Garrett.

I am an author, historian, and tour guide in Santa Fe - and yes, I'm one of those "Cather People." When I first visited the City Different in 1998, my mom made me read "Death Comes for the Archbishop" and I was hooked on New Mexico. I've since discovered how many people have read and been inspired by Cather's novel.

I so love the story that I'm writing a book about how Cather wrote her "best book," using her letters, archival and field research. It's a treasure hunt into Cather's writing process. I can't wait to share these hidden gems of Santa Fe with you!

Garrett is a very engaging host, and encouraged everyone to participate. The tour was a great way to see some off the beaten track sites and learn about the history of Santa Fe.

Garrett is one of the best guides we have ever had, on lots of tours during our long lives. He is thoughtful, incredibly prepared, talks smoothly and rapidly enough to get in lots of info, but not so fast as to loose us. I would recommend him for any educational experience needing a guide.

Informative and engaging led by knowledgeable and personable Garrett. I’ve lived in and out of Santa Fe for 33 years and learned things from him about Santa Fe that I never knew!!

Garrett is a wonderful storyteller and is so knowledgeable and makes history so interesting . It was a great experience and would absolutely recommend his tour! We look forward to doing others in the future and reading some of his books which sound awesome!

Garrett is very knowledgeable about both Cather and Santa Fe which he provides by walking and talking rather than as a lecture making the experience very enjoyable. He pointed out several sites which would have been hard to find and somethings that I would have missed altogether. Definitely recommend.

Don't miss Garrett's tour! Although I hadn't read Willa Cather's book, I signed up because the tour fit in my schedule and looked to help me learn more about Santa Fe's history. I did read the book before the tour and loved it. Even better than the book was Garrett's tour. Garrett kept us all engaged so I never felt I was just walking and listening to a canned tour speech. He encouraged questions and discussion, kept us in the shade, and the time flew by. I look forward to taking another tour with him in the future.
