"Stamina, perseverance, and intellectual curiosity. Those are Florence Lister's requirements for a successful archaeologist--standards she has herself met time and again for more than sixty years. Y"Troweling Through Time" is a valuable non-technical account of the history of archaeology."
""Troweling Through Time" takes the armchair reader on a most enjoyable trip through the "first century of Mesa Verdean archaeology. . . Florence should be saluted for preserving history and making it come alive."
"Y"Troweling Through Time" provides a masterful story about a fascinating region told with aplomb and style by Florence Lister."
"Archaeology can be a dry subject, but not when the writer is Florence C. Lister. . . The author provides a "Pictoral Panorama" of 72 black-and-white photos of the archaeologists and Mesa Vede ruins from 1874 to 2002, which, along with the lively text, make this book an interesting and valuable contribution to both archaeologists and general readers."
"Distinguished archaeologist and historian of archaeology Florence Lister has produced a delightful history of this era that is full of anecdotes and humor. . . Lister weaves a tale of inquiry and adventure in one of the world's most dramatic and interesting archaeological regions."

"Lister is an archaeologist, an expert on ceramics and a historian of archaeology who writes with verve, sophistication, grace ans a wry sense of humor. . . Florence Lister paints the prehistoric ast with a firm, authoritative brush. "Troweling Through Time" represents public archaeology at its best."
"Lister knows the history of which she writes - the story of those who explore the stories of the area's ancient residents. It shows in "Troweling Through Time." The book is certainly first and foremost a historical text - detailed, chronological, footnoted, and indexed. But in execution, it is a story, beautifully and lovingly told."
"One of the more enjoyable aspects of this book is Lister's easy-going storytelling style, peppered with occasional bursts of wry or outright humor, which makes this book a fun and informative read."
"The book is a fun read and especially helpful to those who may be struggling with the conceptual difference between Basketmaker II and Pueblo II."
"Virtually all of the famous Southwestern archaeologists worked at one time or another at Mesa Verde. The book details the time when women gained acceptance into the profession. . . The book will be of interest to professional and amatuer archaeologists, tourists and historians."
