Book Review: Ancient Ruins of the Southwest: An Archeological Guide

Ancient Ruins of the Southwest by David Grant Noble, Northland Publishing, Flagstaff Arizona, 1991.
This book, although a bit dated is a good reference guide to Native American ruins and other artifacts in the states of Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico.  In each chapter it gives a brief synopsis of what is to see in a particular site.  It divides the book into ancient American Indian types: Hohokam, Anasazi, Sinagua and pueblos and missions of New Mexico.  Of particular interest are Hovenweep in Utah,  Mesa Verde in Colorado, and the National Monuments in Arizona.
This book does not cover the Freemont nor the Ute Indians of Utah and is lacking in this regard.
