Description

The Smithsonian magazine reveals that "in the deserts of the Southwest, pothunters are stealing a priceless heritage of native American art." The story describes how in February 2000 Cathy Van Camp, a Forest Service cop, found signs of looting at the prehistoric ruins along the remote East Fork of the New Mexico's Gila River. The author analyses the lawsuit against the arrested looters, and reports the final verdict: "guilty on all counts."
