Phillips Kloss was born in Webster Groves, Missouri in 1902. He moved to New Mexico in 1916 where he worked on his brother’s ranch, later graduating from the University of California at Berkeley in 1925. Once a reporter for the San Francisco Bulletin, he married the artist/etcher Alice Geneva Glasier (Gene Kloss) and moved to Taos, New Mexico in 1927. He is also the author of North Star, The Great Kiva, The Stronghold, and The Taos Crescent, all from Sunstone Press.
“The poet is called curator and conservator of the primeval beauty of a wide domain centered around the historic and legendary town of Taos. He writes with insight of Indian customs and manners and the loss of innocence in the golden West.” —Regina Cooke, The Taos News
