An interpretive guide designed to be read before or after visiting Bandelier National Monument. Stuart, an annual lecturer at Bandelier, greatly enhances our appreciation of the monument's "magic" with his evocative, archaeologically sound insights on the area's history of occupation from Paleo-Indian to Late Classic Puebloan times and on the major sites, inc. Tyonyi, Rainbow House, Ceremonial Cave, Yapashi and the Stone Lions, Tsankawi, Otowi. Author of Prehistoric N.M., Glimpses of the Ancient Southwest (this catalogue), and numerous articles on Southwestern archeology, Stuart works and teaches at the University of New Mexico. "This small book is clearly written, and will help any visitor to New Mexico to understand this park and the ancient heritage of the historic Southwest Indians .... and it presents excellent site maps and photographs of diagnostic artifacts, especially ceramics, for these periods". -- Choice

Choice Review

This guidebook to Bandelier National Monument gives a brief biography of Adolph Bandelier, who described its ruins in 1880; it outlines the cultural history of the region beginning 12,000 years ago, noting which sites within the park belong to specific periods; and it presents excellent site maps and photographs of diagnostic artifacts, especially ceramics, for these periods. Most importantly, it describes a number of classic Eastern Anasazi ruins found within the park's 55 square miles. Although ancient Paleo-Indian spear points are reported from the park, its most dramatic occupation occurs from CE 1200-1450, when such ruins as Tyuonyi and Long House were built. This small book is clearly written, and will help any visitor to New Mexico to understand this park and the ancient heritage of the historic Southwest Indians. P. J. O'Brien Kansas State University
