Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This title is part of the publisher's "Lost Civilizations" series, which also includes titles about the Ancient Greeks and the Minoans. Present-day tribes of the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico are understandably less than pleased to have their ancestors thus lumped into the Victorian-era concept of ancient "lost" cultures. Nonetheless, this is a handsome book, and to be fair, the author does a creditable job of referencing the connections between tribes such as the Hopi, Zuni, and others to these southwestern sites. "It is no mystery to us," he cites a Cochiti tribal member as saying of the romantic notion of "empty" or "abandoned" sites. Elsewhere in the book, numerous photographs and sidebars document further connections between present-day Pueblo cultural practices and artifacts found in so-called "Anasazi" sites. Chapters in the book cover evolving theories of the migration of the first peoples to the North American continent, evidence of early habitation, archeological classifications of the people who predated the ancestral Pueblo, and the flowering of the culture that led to the massive structures of Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde, and the lesser-known Kayenta site. Other material addressed includes rituals and religion, the Chacoan roads, evidence of everyday life, what might have led to the original users leaving the sites, and the legacy they have left to Native America and, in particular, the tribes of the southwest. Newer research findings are highlighted and current controversies in archeology are explained. Back matter includes text notes; a reading list; a bibliography of works consulted, including Internet sources; an index, and photo credits. 2005, Thomson Gale, Ages 8 to12.
