In this thrilling story of intellectual and archaeological discovery, David
Roberts recounts his last twenty years of far-flung exploits in search
of spectacular prehistoric ruins and rock art panels known to very few
modern travelers. His adventures range across Utah, Arizona, New Mexico,
and southwestern Colorado, and illuminate the mysteries of the
Ancestral Puebloans and their contemporary neighbors the Mogollon
and Fremont, as well as of the more recent Navajo and Comanche.
