Rio del Norte: People of Upper Rio Grande from Earliest Times to Pueblo Revolt by Carroll L. RileyItem No: 27508
Rio del Norte chronicles the upper Rio Grande region and its diverse peoples across 12,000 years of continuous history. Based on the most up-to-date historical and archaeological research, Rio del Norte is a tour de force, highlighting the unbroken history of the upper Rio Grande.
Beginning with the mammoth hunters of 11 millennia ago, Carroll Riley adeptly weaves the threads of 12,000 years of continuous history through the introduction of agriculture, the rise of the Basketmaker-Pueblo people, and the extraordinary "quickening" that occurred along the Rio Grande and its tributaries as the Ancestral Pueblo (formerly referred to as Anasazi) era ended.
