9781565794740: People of the Mesa Verde Country: An Archaeological Remembrance

Author Ian Thompson lived virtually all his life in a single place- the Four Corners region. For five decades he explored, studied and wrote about its past and present inhabitants and their relationship to the landscape. When he died in 1998 he left behind this unfinished project. Ian had wanted to synthesize for general readers what the 20th century told us about this very special place. This book cannot be what he hoped to complete before his death, but it is a facsimile of what he had imagined and began the previous year. Edited and published posthumously, People of the Mesa Verde Country is a grateful memorial to Ian Thompson and an opportunity to enjoy the reflections of a man who understood, better than most, why the past matters as profoundly as it does.

About the Author:

Ian (Sandy) Thompson was the executive director of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center from 1987 to 1990 and the director of research from 1995 to 1997. A fifth generation Coloradan who lived in the Four Corners most of his life, Sandy was a consultant to several projects seeking to expand interpretation of archaeological sites in the Four Corners Country to include the perspectives of the American Indians in the region.His books and essays describe the natural and cultural diversity of a rugged land that has been inhabited by a relatively few people at a time for thousands of years.

He served as editor of the Silverton Standard and associate editor of the Durango Herald and he was a city councilman and mayor of Durango and chairman of the city's Centennial Commission. He made his home in the Cortez area and, for years, wrote a column, "Four Corners Almanac", for the Sunday Durango Herald, based on his experiences in the wilderness and in the diverse communities of the Four Corners Country.
