Quick Overview

by Donald J. Rommes, William D. Lipe



The canyon country of Cedar Mesa holds national treasures.This high sandstone plateau in southeast Utah shelters some of the best-preserved remains of ancient dwellings known in the United States. Most of these masonry structures were built eight centuries ago, but remarkable examples of rock art document people's presence many centuries earlier. Sublime color photographs by Don Rommes of the ancient structures and rock art found on Cedar Mesa. Renowned Southwest archaeologist Bill Lipe describes the people who made the artifacts, when and why they left Cedar Mesa, and where they went. The book concludes with a discussion of why and how Cedar Mesa should be protected. Soft cover. 10x10 inches
