How many generations of Cliff-dwellers lived in their strange fastnesses has never been determined; but the great antiquity of the structures which remain in these natural fortifications is unquestioned. Some of these places have become inaccessible, owing to the wearing away of the approaches, by the same elements which in geologic time had fashioned the recesses of the canon-walls to which these people resorted for safety. When the cloud of war grew less threatening, they ventured to leave their towered fortresses where long had been their trials and many their privations, and settled upon the mesas - those high, flat-topped table-lands, forming such prominent features of the scenery in New Mexico.
The accompanying illustration, by W. H. Holmes, from his report in Bulletin No. 1. Vol. 2, U. S. Geol. Survey for 1876, will convey an idea of these ancient structures and the probable means adopted by the inhabitants in obtaining access to them.
The elevation of these sites enabled them to keep a sharp lookout for the enemy; while in the valleys below, along the streams that washed the feet of the cliffs, they sowed and gathered their crops. But this mode of life had also its drawbacks; it was too far from the house to the harvest-field, and the women grew weary, doubtless, of carrying water-jars up the steep acclivity of the rocky walls. So, in the course of time, when their natural enemies - those nomadic tribes by whom war had so long been waged - seemed sated with murder and plunder, the Mesa-dwellers descended to the valleys, their dwellings being once again erected upon the ruins of the towns where their forefathers had lived.
