The Southwest is a land with remarkable spirit as well as stunning natural features ranging from red sandstone mesas to soaring mountain peaks; from infinite plains to immense canyons. The Anasazi called this country home--southern Nevada, Utah, and Colorado as well as large portions of Arizona and New Mexico. IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE ANASAZI explores how this region' historic Indian heritage, shaped by a dramatic natural backdrop, exerts a powerful influence over modern life. This book is a compendium of introspective essays about life and the outdoors under indigenous shadows. Chapters center on mini-adventures in the Four Corners remote backcountry where Native people trod.
