Chasing Centuries: The Search for Ancient Agave Cultivars Across the Desert Southwest

SUPPORT

Ron Parker’s book, Chasing Centuries, is a one-of-a-kind travel history book that takes the reader along on an exciting and little known adventure at the crossroads of archaeology and botany. Travel with the author as he explores the depth and duration of human/agave coevolution across the desert southwest, and discovers unusual agaves apparently associated with archaeological sites long since abandoned by residents of ancient cultures. These agaves appear to be anthropogenic cultivars; living archaeological relics developed and planted by indigenous pre-Columbian Native Americans, and many are still growing exactly where they were planted hundreds of years ago.
