Strapped to a helicopter, Richard A. Cooke III photographs sites in New Mexico's Chaco Canyon. Born in Hawaii and now a resident of Oregon, Rik has contributed to "Builders of the Ancient World" and other Society publications. "America's Ancient Cities," he says, "combined by two favorite life interests -- photography and architecture."
In his Pennsylvania studio, H. Tom Hall works on one of the 15 paintings he created for "America's Ancient cities." A book illustrator for 30 years, chiefly of historical subjects, he was the artist for two other Special Publications, "John Muir's Wild America" and "Into the Wilderness." "Archeology was a new field for me," Tom says. "Doing the paintings for this book filled a gap in my education."
LOTS of color beautiful photographs and illustrations!
