When Ken and Ruth Wright went hiking through Mesa Verde National Park, they didn't expect to be pulled into a research project on ancient waterworks. But sucked in they were.
Using the science of paleohydrology- the study of water use and water handling by ancient peoples- Wright and his researchers were able to prove that certain sites in the park were in fact reservoirs for ancient peoples who lived in Mesa Verde.
Wright details their research and their discoveries in The Water Mysteries of Mesa Verde. This enthralling book meticulously recounts the intelligence, the ingenuity, and the forethought of our ancestors.
