Editorial Reviews

Review

A superb summary of the deep Native history in the area around Flagstaff, Arizona the archaeological Sinagua region. What a lively history it was: volcanic eruptions; Chaco-meets-Hohokam geopolitics; violence on the frontiers! And, of course, families, clans, and villages that survived and even thrived amid alarms and excursions. This strikingly-illustrated volume is the go-to resource for Sinagua. Leading researchers present their recent discoveries and new syntheses of past work. Insightful chapters by Native scholars remind us that the story continues today at the pueblos of the Hopi Tribe. --Stephen H. Lekson, author of A History of the Ancient Southwest (SAR Press)

For anyone with an interest in southwestern prehistory, the eloquently written Hisatsinom is a must read. It connects the past to the present by offering multiple voices and perspectives that illustrate the varied meanings, interpretations, and values surrounding this archaeologically rich region. --Wolf Gumerman, University Honors Program, Northern Arizona University

The history of the Native Americans who long ago lived around Arizona s Sunset Crater and the Verde Valley have fascinated, and sometimes puzzled, generations of researchers and casual visitors. We are most fortunate now to have an authoritative book that general readers can enjoy, which explains what is currently known about the life and culture of these ancient peoples. --David Grant Noble, author of Ancient Colorado: An Archaeological Perspective and In the Places of the Spirits (SAR Press)

SAR continues its successful Popular Archaeology series with this volume on the archaeology of the Sinagua region near Flagstaff, Arizona. I am unaware of a popular series that so effectively blends academic research with accessible writing in such a compellingly illustrated package. --Wesley Bernardini, Journal of Anthropological Research, vol. 69, no. 1, 2013

Format: Paperback
The book is aimed at general readers, with relatively short chapters that cover various aspects of the Sinagua area. The perspectives are varied, including the welcome inclusion of Native American points of view, and it would be difficult to find a better up-to-date synthesis of what is known (and remains to be discovered) about this part of the Southwest. The information is comprehensive, the writing is clear and accessible, and the scholarship is excellent. It is gratifying to see the Sinagua area finally receive the attention it deserves and in such a competent and appealing way.
