  A very special field trip.

-The Horn Book  


                                                                                                                                           Kids travel to the Mesa Verde region of Colorado to work with archaeologists digging in ruins. They help bring an ancient Indian culture to life — along with the people who lived in it.

So appealing that every child who reads it carefully will want to make the same archeological trek.  -The Boston Globe

Kids are doing, learning, and loving it–and that excitement, captured on the page, raises this book above others in the science field. -The San Diego Union-Tribune



The kids in this book studied the Ancestral Puebloan people, who lived out in the western United States.  Here is a four-story building these people carved into the cliffs about 800 years ago.  They used hand-and-toe-holds to climb up the steep cliffs toward home.
