Gary A David ‘Star Shrines of the Desert Southwest’ Capricorn Radio
Published on Jul 21, 2013
Gary A. David is an author, independent researcher, and archaeo-astronomer who has been intrigued by the American Southwest since his initial trip there in 1987. The following year he lived for about six months in northern New Mexico, where he studied archaeological ruins and rock art. In 1994 he moved to Arizona and began an intensive study of the ancestral Pueblo People (sometimes incorrectly referred to as the Anasazi) and their descendants the Hopi.
In 2006 after more than a decade of fieldwork and scholarly inquiry, his nonfiction book The Orion Zone: Ancient Star Cites of the American Southwest was published. This volume describes a pattern of Hopi villages and ruin sites that precisely mirrors Orion, with an ancient site corresponding to each major star in the constellation. (See map page.) The sequel released in 2008 is titled Eye of the Phoenix: Mysterious Visions and Secrets of the American Southwest. In 2010 the third book in the series called The Kivas of Heaven: Ancient Hopi Starlore was published. In November 2012 the next in the series titled Star Shrines and Earthworks of the Desert Southwest was released. All four books are available from Adventures Unlimited Press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, and fine bookstores everywhere.
