According to archaeologist Stephen H. Lekson, much of what we think we know about the Southwest has been compressed into conventions and classifications and orthodoxies. This book challenges and reconfigures these accepted notions by telling two parallel stories, one about the development, personalities, and institutions of Southwestern archaeology and the other about interpretations of what actually happened in the ancient past.

If you spent any time with Mr. Thomas, specially over a meal, then you know that he knew every healthy and/or delicious meal served by local restaurants. This is not to say that other good meals are not out there but if it was organic or free range or grass fed, he had found it. We've visited many of these places and ordered some of those favorites for this report. Enjoy. Also, if you are visiting than this is a good directory of some of the best.
Downtown Flagstaff favorite! Jeff, the current owner does his best to include organic and fresh food in his recipes. Some of the best soups in town.
Grilled chicken salad, a perrenial favorite! Why? The produce is fresh and organic, the dressing - sesame seed oil and tamari - is home made and the chicken is cooked when the item is ordered. We really don't like cold chicken that sat in the fridge, for who knows how long. This factor alone has eliminated some very popular restaurants from this presentation. But there is another important feature on this table, the juice. It is carrot, apple and celery, made fresh. This may be the only restaurant in Flagstaff to make fresh juice with a meal. Just one of many favorites at this establishment.
