New Light on Chaco Canyon Reviews
This is a collection of essays – some interesting and others not so – alas not written by David Grant Noble (who is most eloquent when writing of the southwest). The most interesting to me were the essays on art and architecture—mainly because when you visit Chaco you see very little art and massive amounts of masonry in spectacular piles. Another essay on the road system is very interesting. Chaco is the one place in the southwest where information and theories are changing weekly. It is a dead city alive with conjecture. If you have never climbed the mesa to walk the great north road—you must. It’s wonderful and amazing. You might want to pass this book over—there are better.
