    A Past Preserved in Stone: A History of Montezuma Castle National Monument

    Want to know the indepth story of Montezuma Castle over the last 100 years? This is the book for you. While it starts with the first possible Spanish explorers to visit the Verde Valley in 1583, the real beauty of this work is in its treatment of the history of the National Monument. Dealing within historical contexts, Protas looks at the administrative, natural and cultural divisions, and the management decisions which have guided the park.
