    You will be sorry when you read the last page!

    Like the author, I love visiting ancient ruins in the Southwest, but because of Mr. Roberts' climbing skills, the reader learns more about what it is like to travel to remote and more pristine ruins that most of us only dream about. The site descriptions are detailed and informative, but most of all this book teaches respect for visiting ruins and appreciation of the Anasazi's skills in using the terrain to their best advantage. Wonderful reading!

    Planning a visit to Mesa Verde in June 2013, I bought the book to get a little info regarding the area. I found the book to be very informative and interesting. However, I also found that unless one lives in that particular area of the country, it can become a bit repetative. I do appreciate the authors adventures, his teaching of respect of our cultures, his appreciation of maintaining the Hopi secrets, et cetera, but I did find it difficult to complete the book. It did give a good prespective on the Basketmakers and the subsequent evoluation of the culture and it also provided interesting information on the vast distribution of the Anasazi's culture. Would buy if interested in learning more about the Anasazi, but keep in mind, you will reading a travel book detailing the hiking of a persons journey.

    Great Reading!

    Even those with just a casual interest in the Anasazi would like this book. I felt as though I were along on Mr. Roberts travels -- he has done what I can only dream of doing! I enjoyed the mix of learning about history, archeology, and culture, while simply enjoying following along on an adventure.

    This might be Roberts best. THAT would say a lot!
    It moves along at a good pace. His descriptions of the landscapes put the reader there (if that is possible).
    Framing and understanding unsolved historic mystery is tough to do but taking it in as adventure makes it come to life. It is a great read!
