Chaco Canyon: Archaeology and Archaeologists by Lister
Chaco Canyon: Archaeology and Archaeologists. Robert H. Lister; Florence C. Lister, University of New Mexico Press, 1984.
Chaco Canyon, sprawled in the desert of northwestern New Mexico and uninhabited since the twelfth century, is one of North America's richest archaeological zones. This lavishly illustrated book is the first complete account of Chacoan archaeology, from the discovery of the ruins by Spanish soldiers in the seventeenth century through the scientific analyses of the 1970s. The authors follow the history of Chacoan archaeology with a vivid portrayal of the day-to-day lives of the Anasazi Indians, the Neolithic farmers who abandoned the region some 800 years ago.
