An advocate of the pioneering work of this seldom-recognized archaeologist group in their discovery and seminal work in the major ruins of the Mesa Verde, Maurine S. Fletcher has taken the records, journals, and writings of Benjamin Alfred Wetherill, his family members, and others, to provide a factual record for history and archaeology. Though degraded and their work nearly denied by the U.S. Department of the Interior, the five Wetherill brothers and their brother-in-law Charles Mason worked in and near the Ute Indian Reservation in the 1880s and 1890s, trying to maintain a living while searching for either a myth or a place of the gods. The Ute Indians spoke about the existence of greater ruins than those in the Mancos Canon, but would never reveal the locations, fearing that the spirits of those who had occupied the ruins would destroy them all. Locating the major ruins in 1888, the Wetherills attempted to get the state of Colorado and the federal government to protect the Mesa Verde cliff dwellings before they were ruined by entrepreneurs searching for things to sell. This is the calamitous story of not only the short-sightedness of government to protect the site of the discovery but also its cold indifference and subsequent denigration of the Wetherill family's contribution.

The Wetherills have been misaligned for decades. This book by one of the lesser known brothers is an excellent story of the family and who they really were and what they did.

A great book for those interested in American archaeology, western American history, or geology. Wetherill was a good writer. He put in just enough, not too much, detail. Reading the book, I felt almost as if I was there exploring the mesas. The Wetherill family did a great deal to preserve the ruins of the Southwestern native cultures by photographing, documenting, and sometimes collecting artifacts. They made a great many artifacts available to museums. They had a great respect for the native cultures of their region. I heartily recommend this book.
