The Alden kids visit a Navajo family and dig for Indian artifacts. This book told surprisingly a lot about Navajo culture.

One thing I did not like: A blond man shows up and says he is a genealogist and is part Navajo. The kids doubt this because he knows nothing about Indian culture and he is from the Northeast. In reality, it could be a distant relative of his who is Navajo, although the book never says this.
Nice that it touches upon Navajo culture, as even though almost every BCC book tries to teach its young readers about something new, it's usually less clearly anthropological and more just about *things*. The mystery is the usual ho-hum type, however.

I like when a man tells the Aldens he thinks they found the lost of their tribe. And I like when they find dishes and pots and they find the village.

One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)
