Salt Lake City, UT – Chaco Canyon has been called the Las Vegas of the 11th Century. It was the bustling cross-roads of the Anasazi people, who excelled in architecture, art, commerce and engineering. But by around 1250, the city was abandoned, creating one of the great unsolved mysteries of our past. What happened to the Anazasi and their rich culture? Craig Childs talks to Doug about his new book House of Rain. It's a piece of historical detective work that takes the reader back some 800 years into the forbidding landscape of the American Southwest.

  • Craig Childs will speak Tuesday, March 27 at 7:00 p.m. at the Salt Lake City Main Public Library. For more information, click here or call 801-524-8200.
