Whether you are an agave enthusiast or have a passion for anthropology of the American Southwest, Chasing Centuries provides an informative and visually stunning synthesis of both disciplines. A longtime devotee of the genus, Parker has done the research and fieldwork, culminating in a beautifully designed book. Gorgeous images of the plants and pre-Columbian ruins are supplemented with maps to paint a thorough picture of agaves and their importance to the native cultures.
