An informative review of the archaeological sites in the American Southwest. History is included in bite size chunks, along with photographs, maps and sightseeing tips. Great in the armchair and invaluable in dusty shoes.
This is a great guide to a trip to the American Southwest if you are interested in Prehistoric Native Americans. The author breaks down prehistoric archaeological sites by time period and then describes, provides background info on, gives directions to, and touring suggestions on each of them. It is an excellent begining for an in-person study of the topic. The book deals with the Paleo-hunters of the region, the Mogollon, the Hohokam, the Anasazi, the Salado, the Fremont and the Pueblos of New Mexico. Again, excellent research for a trip to Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah.
