Acoma, the sky city of New Mexico, is presented here by an enchanting text and beautiful color photographs in this revised edition of the Southwest classic book. Occupied by the Acoma Indians, Acoma mesa pueblo is located 65 miles west of Albuquerque. This gem of antiquity is said to be the oldest continuously-inhabited community on the North American continent. The fascinating introduction was written by Frank Waters, one of New Mexico's most famous sons, a literary giant, and an authority on the history of the Indians of New Mexico. In Acoma, the buildings, the people, their traditions and their unique style of pottery are so closely related to this singular terrain that they have become known far beyond its desert.
