  • I probably wouldn t have picked up this title on my own, but did so as part of a book club I d heard of the Millicent Rogers Museum in Taos, but that s all I knew of her She grew up in an extremely wealthy East Coast family overseen by a controlling father, married early and often, and seemed to look for meaning in life not through personal achievement, charity work, or family life, but by collecting beautiful homes, fashions and jewelry, which she also designed She is still remembered as a fash [...]


  • You have to visit Taos NM and visit the Rogers Museum before reading this book Otherwise, you will not have the context on Millicent and her life Although Burns work has some structural issues, it is a good look into the mega rich at the turn of the last century as well as a look at a woman who was decades ahead of her time Interestingly, Millicent could easily have taken a conservative track and stayed in the NE, collecting this and that, while watching her money accumulate She did not That s w [...]

  • Having been to the museum which bears her name Taos, I was really enthused when this book came out In the beginning her life was fairly narrowly defined by the wealth of her Robber Baron father, a co founder of Standard Oil There were the requisite balls, homes, travel, and above all, the clothes and jewelry Almost from the beginning she defined her own exquisite style, which she honed to a degree unseen by anyone else of her era She moves through an amazing life, which ends with her greatest lo [...]


  • The biography of the lady behind the Millicent rogers museum in Taos The book seems well researched but not well edited sometimes you don t have to include every detail discovered during research I came away feeling this was an extraordinary woman of privilege and dysfunction I find it hard to admire the values and lifestyle Rogers expenses when finances are tight are certainly different from the average person I love her Southwestern collections and I m appreciative of the Millicent Rogers Muse [...]


  • A fascinating story about a fascinating woman However, not the best written book I ve ever read The chronology is a bit off, so parts of the book can be confusing, and it s weirdly racist especially towards the end There are a lot of racial slurs in there that should have been in quotations so it didn t sound like the author was using them It was odd.


  • This is one of the most poorly copyedited books I have read in a long time St Martin s Press should be ashamed to publish a book that contains such gems as ex patriot, he had not drank, ceremony for cemetery , as well as comma and apostrophe errors every few pages


  • Very informative and interesting book about her life however, the writing is poorly done I read this book after a recent visit to her museum in Taos, NM and it really helped me understand her life and the things located throughout this splendid museum.


  • Loved all the info in this book But unfortunately for Millicent, and Cherie Burns, this book missed a few rounds of editing It could have been so much better, if someone had just read it over Still yummy info though about a fashion icon.








  • An interesting and enjoyable read Nice background and review of Millicent Rogers her life and the attendant period of history.



  • This was a little dry it could have used quotes from her diaries and letters That said, I enjoyed learning about MR especially after visiting her museum in Taos
