A.D. 1250: Ancient Peoples of the Southwest

A.D. 1250: Ancient Peoples of the Southwest Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Cheek draws on the work of the foremost archaeologists and anthropologists of the region, and explores some 25 major Southwestern prehistoric sites, to chronicle the birth, rise, decline, and ultimate collapse of the great Sinagua, Anasazi, Hohokam, Mogollon, and Salado cultures. Ravishing color photographs illustrate the terrain as well as the spectacular artifacts and ruins left behind by these ancient peoples. No scholarly paraphernalia, but at 10.25x13.25", this is obviously a coffee-table extravaganza.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
