"Burrillo makes a commanding debut in a consistently fascinating distillation of the unrivaled mosaic nature of the land's history."
--THE UTAH REVIEW
For more than 12,000 years, the wondrous landscape of southeastern Utah has defined the histories, cultures, and lives of everyone who calls it home. Archaeologist and conservationist R. E. Burrillo takes readers on a journey of discovery through the stories and controversies that make this place so unique, from traces of its earliest inhabitants through its role in shaping the study of Southwest archaeology itself--and into the modern battle over its protection.
