Craig Childs House of Rain

Craig Childs—naturalist, adventurer, desert ecologist, and frequent contributor to National Public Radio’s Morning Edition—is the author of The Secret Knowledge of Water, Soul of Nowhere, and The Way Out. Childs discusses House of Rain: Tracking a Vanished Civilization Across the Southwest, in which he presents a portrait, in words and photos, of the Anasazi people: their rise to power, their diaspora, and, ultimately, the long road of their civilization’s demise.
