Tony Hillerman strikes again! This is not just the product of an author who knows his background, but loves it in all shapes and sizes. What I love about any Hillerman book is the educational quality that is poured into each page, each character. I have learned more about native American culture than my several trips to the Big Res. And each is entertaining. My only regret is he only wrote 18 books on this theme. And each is a treasure.

The Anasazi Indians were a remarkable group of people. From the way they made there Pottery, to the way they made there Houses from 800ad to 1200ad. But in this Suspensful Mystery, they are turning in there grave, because there are pothunters (people who dig up artifacts illegally) on the loose all around Four Corners Indian Country. If that aint bad enough, an athropoligist is missing from Chaco Canyon. There is no better team than Lt.Leaphorn and Officer Chee to try and solve these Cases. This book was so good it influenced me to visit Chaco Canyon National Park. You need to read this book. I read some of it at Chaco while the Sunset was setting at Pueblo Bonito, it was facinating. If you never visited Chaco Canyon this book will influnce you to do so.
