by Jefferson Reid (Author), Stephanie Whittlesey (Author). ISBN-13: 978-0816517091. In a clearly written, easy-to-understand way, it makes Arizona archaeology come alive for the general reader. The book is filled with information on the prehistory and early history of Arizona, but despite the abundance of data, it doesn't overwhelm the reader. Overall, this book is a 'must-have' for anyone with a general interest in Southwestern prehistory. I would go beyond this, and recommend it to Southwestern archaeologists as a great overview and refresher.

Ancient life at these special places will never be understood with as much detail as we have for Grasshopper Pueblo". Much of the detail is reported in the many published papers, nine doctoral dissertations, and two masters' theses cited by the authors, and more reports are likely to follow

Ancient life at these special places will never be understood with as much detail as we have for Grasshopper Pueblo". Much of the detail is reported in the many published papers, nine doctoral dissertations, and two masters' theses cited by the authors, and more reports are likely to follow. As a training ground for archaeologists, Grasshopper is probably comparable in importance to the Chaco Canyon field schools and excavations of the 1920s- 194Os. Aanvullende informatie.

Carved from cliffs and canyons, buried in desert rock and sand are pieces of the ancient past that beckon thousands of visitors every year to the American Southwest. Whether Montezuma Castle or a chunk of pottery, these traces of prehistory also bring archaeologists from all over the world, and their work gives us fresh insight and information on an almost day-to-day basis. Who hasn't dreamed of boarding a time machine for a trip into the past? This book invites us to step into a Hohokam village with its sounds of barking dogs, children's laughter, and the ever-present grinding of mano on metate to produce the daily bread. Here, too, readers will marvel at the skills of Clovis elephant hunters and touch the lives of other ancestral people known as Mogollon, Anasazi, Sinagua, and Salado. Descriptions of long-ago people are balanced with tales about the archaeologists who have devoted their lives to learning more about "those who came before." Trekking through the desert with the famed Emil Haury, readers will stumble upon Ventana Cave, his "answer to a prayer." With amateur archaeologist Richard Wetherill, they will sense the peril of crossing the flooded San Juan River on the way to Chaco Canyon. Others profiled in the book are A. V. Kidder, Andrew Ellicott Douglass, Julian Hayden, Harold S. Gladwin, and many more names synonymous with the continuing saga of southwestern archaeology. This book is an open invitation to general readers to join in solving the great archaeological puzzles of this part of the world. Moreover, it is the only up-to-date summary of a field advancing so rapidly that much of the material is new even to professional archaeologists. Lively and fast paced, the book will appeal to anyone who finds magic in a broken bowl or pueblo wall touched by human hands hundreds of years ago. For all readers, these pages offer a sense of adventure, that "you are there" stir of excitement that comes only with making new discoveries about the distant past.

This book has a lot of information I didn't know about the Southwestern indigenous people of Arizona. The pictures are fabulous and the information is accurate. It's an interesting read also. The authors did an excellent job keeping the reader's interest!

This book is an excellent book . . . I took an Anthropology course from the author of this book - Dr. J. J. Reid while I was a student at the University of AZ (I'm a 2008 graduate, earning a BFA from the college of fine arts). Dr. Reid is an excellent instructor and the book is very informative. A must read for anyone interested in anthropology. B. Best

I am a family genealogist and have been gathering books written by or about Whittleseys. I don't always read each of them from cover to cover but do copy the covers and inside jacket leaves, preface and other pertinent information to post on our family website for sharing with the whole family.

For a smaller book, this one is full of really great information. I found it well written and much more universal in its writing than the title would suggest. If you would like to understand how AZ was put together in the days of these prehistoric cultures, this book is an amazing help. If you can master the concepts and information in this volume, you would have a great handle on the subject.
