About: Over the centuries the people of the Puerco Valley in what is now northeastern Arizona made decorated serving bowls, water jars, elaborately textured cooking jars and highly polished thin-walled bowls, all from the natural clays of the Painted Desert. The volume summarizes much of what we have learned about the vibrant ceramic traditions of this fascinating region.
