Description
When Richard Wetherill and his brother-in-law Charlie Mason were following cow tracks up Chapin Mesa they never expected to see what lay ahead of them through the snow flurries, a cave totally filled with houses which they later named Cliff Palace The next day they discovered Spruce Tree House and Square Tower House. This area which is now part of Mesa Verde National Park is well known for the sheer beauty of its archaeological ruins. For hundreds of years the geography of Mesa Verde has acted as a canopy protecting the remains of its ancient sites.What happened to the Anasazi is still speculation but some new views of the disappearance of the Anasazi are discussed here. Now available to the general public, this guide is comprehensive enough for the serious beginner or the seasoned expert.... the volume edited by David Noble offers a series of detailed essays on the people who built the pueblos of the Mesa Verde region .... -- Los Angles Times
