Overview

This book is a collection of information about the history and present situation of Native Americans, who for centuries lived and still live in the South-western area of the United States.The history of these people begins in the pre-historic era. They were among the first civilized people on earth to build multi-storied buildings.

When the Spanish met them for the first time they were amazed at their kindness and civility. That is why the Spanish called them "Pueblos" meaning "people of the villages."
After the defeat of the Spanish from America, an article of the peace treaty provided that the Spanish names would be preserved wherever they existed in the ceded territory.

Although this is very brief history of the Pueblos, it reminds the reader what difficult times these people went through in the past five centuries before assuming their rightful place in American society as proud Native Americans.

Finally, in the past few decades there have been interesting discussions about "Extra Terrestrial" relations of ancient civilizations in India, the Middle East, Egypt, Peru and Ancient Pueblos of the Southwest. There is a brief mention of these discussions at the end of the book.
