    1. Excellent book describing the history of the creation and subsequent maintaenance of the Mesa Verde National Park. Very intersting describing the movements and politics that led to its creation in 1906. Then equally interesting as it describes the century since then. I read this in preparation for an upcoming visit. With luck, I can come back and update my review with hindsight.
