Hiking New Mexico's Chaco Canyon: The Trails, the Ruins, the History By James C. Wilson Cover Image


Hiking New Mexico's Chaco Canyon is a guidebook for informed hikers who want a substantive yet accessible guide to hiking and camping at Chaco Canyon in New Mexico, a World Heritage Site that the Zuni, Hopi, Acoma and other pueblos consider their ancestral homeland. The guide offers advice about what to bring to the canyon, information on camping at Chaco's Gallo Campground, and personal accounts of hiking "Downtown Chaco" and the longer, sometimes remote mesa trails. Included is a summary of the canyon's history before, during, and after the Ancestral Puebloan occupation, as well as an overview of current research in the canyon and a bibliography for those who want to learn more. One thousand years ago Chaco Canyon was a metropolis of massive stone structures at the center of Chaco culture. The book also includes maps and over fifty of the author's photographs.
