Perfect companion to your SW visit 6. Februar 2006
Von M. Gordon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I reviewed this book for the Gila Cliff Dwellings bookstore that I run down here in Southwest New Mexico and am extremely pleased with this publication and thrilled to add it to my stock as a "Staff Pick." For the SW visitor (or resident!)interested in exploring ruins and sites here I encourage the purchase of this book not only for the outstanding photography that captures the essence of this area but for the research and accurate content, which is often hit-or-miss with travel books. The authors have included many obscure sites along with the popular ones.

Where to Go and What You'll Find There 23. Mai 2006
Von John Matlock - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Last Week I was driving east of Flagstaff, Arizona when I noticed a sign saying Walnut Creek National Monument. I had no idea what was there, but turned off to go see. It was fascinating. A collection of cliff dwellings from the long ago Sinagua indian tribe. It was only by accident that I went there.

Then I found this book that describes and pictures all or nearly all of what remains from these early cultures in the four corners area. It is beautifully done, both the writing and the pictures. Using it we were able to find numerous points to visit that we simply wouldn't have thought about otherwise.

The book talks about a lot of places such as Walnut Creek as well as the larger, better known sites such as Mesa Verde. It covers my own favorites of Hovenweep, Chaco Canyon and Canyon de Chelly quite well. This is, foremost a visitors guide. It is not a book on the people, where they came from or why they left. It doesn't cover things like why do experts think that people didn't really live at Chaco Canyon. It tells you instead that Chaco exists, how to find it, and what's there.

Indespensible guide to Southwestern ruins 24. Juli 2007
Von Stephen W. Hinch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Gordon and Cathie Sullivan have done an outstanding job of describing many of the more accessible ruins and rock art sites of the Southwest. The text gives a succinct overview of each site and what is known about its history. The color photography is outstanding, and the production qualities of the book are first-rate. This has clearly been a labor of love by two people who have really done their homework.

I own many books on prehistoric ruins and rock art of the Southwest. None can cover everything. This book focuses on the more easily accessible sites (not always well known) and a few well-known but less accessible ones like Keet Seel and Betatakin. It also doesn't go into a lot of detail about what you will see when you get there. But as an overall introduction to prehistoric Indian ruins and rock art, there is none better.

I have no complaints but.... 9. Mai 2009
Von lordhoot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I think the previous three reviewers have covered the details of this book very well and I have no real problems with anything they have written. Their reviews are very accurate and to the point.

However, I would like to point out one major failing of this roadside guide that they have not mention. I guess its up to guys like me to write something like this. My only complaint about this book is that there is no detail map of the individual locations detail in this book. There is a general road maps with locations but nothing on the individual location itself. I suppose you can stop by the visitor centers and that sort of things to collect these information but it would have been nice just go ahead with this book in hand to visit many of the sites photographed.

With such maps, it would be easier to plan where to go, how to do it, where the important sites at the location and all that. After all, this is a book you will buy BEFORE you go on a road trip, not after.

That is my little gripe on this otherwise, well written, well photographed and excellently informative book.

EXCELLENT guide for planning SW rock art and ruins trips 18. November 2010
Von Jack Warner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have a strong interest in prehistoric indian archaeological sites and rock art. While on a trip to the Chaco Canyon Anasazi ruins in Fall 2008, I purchased this book in the National Park book store. Since then, I have used it to plan about 3 weeks worth of rock art and Indian ruin trips to Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. I have visited 22 of the sites discussed in the book. I have found the book an EXCELLENT guide. The directions and maps are accurate and useful for planning and locating sites. Site descriptions are accurate and often exceptionally interesting. The photos are excellent. Generally this book plus normal state highway maps are adequate (I use AAA maps), but for the remote off pavement sites (I have a stock 4WD SUV), I use a DeLorme state Atlas & Gazetter with detailed maps. Sometimes, parts of the site descriptions repeat, but I consider this a plus, as I read the sections to my wife as we arrive at the site, before we explore the site. No book will have all the rock art or ruin sites as there are thousands of them. Once I plan a trip with this book, I search for related nearby sites of special interest on the WWW and create an overall itinerary. Many state and county tourist sites have information on lesser sites. I have actually found this book more accurate that some of the government sites. One warning to those unfamiliar with Southwest off pavement travel. Much of this territory is very lightly populated and rugged. Snow, ice, and rain downpours can make travel impossible until the road clears. On a trip to the excellent Barrier Canyon Culture Buckhorn Wash rock art site in Utah 10/2010, my wife and I were almost trapped near the site due to a flash flood brought on by a thunderstorm front. We had to detour over 150 miles due to flooded washes with deep, slippery mud. If you go off pavement, do your best to get local conditions, and carry survival gear good for a few days.
