In this landmark work on the Anasazi tribes of the Southwest, naturalist Craig Childs dives head on into the mysteries of this vanished people. The various tribes that made up the Anasazi people converged on Chaco Canyon (New Mexico) during the 11th century to create a civilization hailed as "the Las Vegas of its day, " a flourishing cultural center that attracted pilgrims from far and wide, and a vital crossroads of the prehistoric world. By the 13th century, however, Chaco's vibrant community had disappeared without a trace. Was it drought? Pestilence? War? Forced migration, mass murder or suicide? Conflicting theories have abounded for years, capturing the North American imagination for eons. Join Craig Childs as he draws on the latest scholarly research, as well as a lifetime of exploration in the forbidden landscapes of the American Southwest, to shed new light on this compelling mystery. He takes us from Chaco Canyon to the highlands of Mesa Verde, to the Mongollon Rim; to a contemporary Zuni community where tribal elders maintain silence about the fate of their Lost Others; and to the largely unexplored foothills of the Sierra Madre in Mexico, where abundant remnants of Anasazi culture lie yet to be uncovered.

We have only been to Chaco Canyon once- back in the late 60's, but I have been fascinated with Native American culture ever since. This book is spellbinding- it tells of the author's search for long lost Pueblo sites in the canyons of New Mexico and the effect of long-term drought on the natives of ...
together ruins in remote Sonora and Chihuahua with well known US
National Parks, mixing interviews with archeologists and family
adventures on the road, dredging information from obscure reports,

I have ambivalent feelings about this book. On the one hand, I love his style of writing! He has a real flair for imbuing his writing with the feel of a place! His descriptions are great- I loved where he was talking about the mechanical pumps used in the natural gas fields. He said something like ...
