"A wonderful book about new and diverse research in Chaco
Canyon."--New Mexico Historical Review
"If budgets allow for only one book on the archaeology of Chaco Canyon, this is the one to choose."--Choice
"The volume shows that archaeologists continue to advance sophisticated and nuanced models of ancient Chacoan society. The evolution of our collective understanding of this complicated cultural phenomenon is encouraging." --New Mexico Historical Review
"In the same way that the ancestral inhabitants of Pueblo Bonito kept alive and renewed their cultural ties to their past by reentering and restoring their connection to parts of their pueblo that dated to over two hundred years earlier, these papers renew and refurbish our understanding of collections made more than one hundred years ago."--Richard Wilshusen, co-editor of Crucible of Pueblos: The Early Pueblo Period in the Northern Southwest
