"An award-winning author and veteran mountain climber takes us deep into the Southwest backcountry to uncover secrets of its ancient inhabitants. In The Lost World of the Old Ones, Roberts continues the hunt for answers begun in his classic book, In Search of the Old Ones. As he elucidates startling archaeological breakthroughs, Roberts also recounts his last twenty years of far-flung exploits in search of spectacular prehistoric ruins and rock-art panels known to very few modern travelers. His adventures range across Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and southwestern Colorado illuminating the mysteries of the Old Ones as well as of the more recent Navajo and Comanche. Roberts calls on his climbing and exploratory expertise to reach the remote sanctuaries of the ancients hidden within nearly vertical cliffs, many of which are unknown to archaeologists and park rangers. As a passionate advocate for an experiential encounter with history, Roberts mixes the findings of experts with personal explorations to raise questions that archaeologists have yet to address"--Provided by publisher.
