Craig Childs set out to find who the Anasazi people where and what became of them. He has hunted through villages where no one lives and looked for aincient walkways across the Southwest. This hour on Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders, Jean Feraca talks with him about his adventure.

- Pete 2/26/07: "Finally, a whole hour WPR program devoted to our Indiginous People, notably in the Pre-American civilization era."
- Ronn 2/26/07: "I heard your intro to Craig Childs and the part where you asked listeners if they liked looking for arrowheads and other artifacts. Please remind your listeners that removing ANY found items (even fragments of pots) from an historical site is considered to looting, and a person can be fined and/or jailed for doing so. It might also be desecration of a holy site.There are resources (mainly through the University of New Mexico) to volunteer to work on archaeological digs if you are into the hunt. But if you want a pot, go to a reservation and buy one from the potter. You will be helping an artisan and will not be breaking the law. Thanks for an interesting show. Chaco Canyon is truly awe-inspiring."
