Notes: The title refers to a layer of black volcanic ash, thrown from the Sunset Crater eruption in A.D. 1070, that covers an area of approximately 800 square miles in northeastern Arizona. Colton describes his book The Sinagua (see https://joethebookguy.com/shop/archaeology/the-sinagua-a-summary-of-the-archaeology-of-the-region-of-flagstaff-arizona/ )as a work of analysis of the Sinagau and their commerce, arts, crafts, dwellings, kivas, agricultural practices, and their way of life, and this accompanying volume as a synthesis, “…forming a picture of the prehistory of northern Arizona from the remotest records of early man until modern Hopi and Navajo culture.” (from the dust jacket)
