About this book

In this highly interpretive summary, Jesse Jennings preserves the achievements of the salvage team and explains how the finds affected previous conclusions. This book also highlights the larger consequences of the massive salvage project - among them the stimulation of additional Southwest research; the applications of techniques made in response to emergency situations; and a valuable perspective on the Pueblo culture. Because this area is becoming increasingly controversial, with a raging debate over whether Lake Powell should be drained, this book stands as more than a model of salvage archaeology. It is also a record and testament of the rich history of Glen Canyon.
