Mesa Verde was first discovered by white men in 1888. It is now the largest archeological preserve in the United States. Archaeologists call the ancient people who inhabited Mesa Verde, Anasazi from the Navajo word for ancient.
This is a heavily researched historical novel which is divided between the early white settlers trying to sell off artifacts and the archeologist trying to preserve the site. The other part of the story tells of the Raven Clan in about 450 A.D. It is a time of starvation from drought and the Raven Clan set out upon a perilous journey to find a mystical mesa where hope can be reborn. Echata is the leader of the Clan.
What I enjoyed most is the history McCarthy supplied via the story. Mesa Verde is a fascinating place. I would suggest reading this book before visiting; it would make the trip more enjoyable. Gene Engene did his usual good job narrating the book. I found the book while searching Audible for books narrated by Gene Engene. The book is about 13 hours long.
