David Grant Noble is a writer, editor, and photographer living in Santa Fe. He was on the staff of the School for  Advanced Research for many years and is associated with the Archaeological Conservancy.
He has long studied the Southwest's deep history and archaeology and traveled widely to photograph ruins, rock art and landscape. His books bring fresh archaeological and historical  information to general readers. The first, Ancient  Ruins of the Southwest: an Archaeological Guide, has been in print for more than 30 years. Other titles include In Search of Chaco: New Approaches to an Archaeological Enigma, and most recently, In the Places of the Spirits. All his books and many photographs can be seen at www.davidgrantnoble.com. Noble's photographs have been exhibited in  galleries in New York, Santa Fe, San Francisco, and Dallas and collected by the Museum of New Mexico, Yale University's Beinecke Library, and the New York Public Library.
In 2003, Noble received the Victor Stoner Award from the Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society in recognition of his "outstanding efforts to bring historical and archaeological awareness of the  Southwest to the general public." In 2011, the Western National Parks Association  presented him with the Emil Haury Award for "outstanding contributions in scientific  research or other activities that advance the understanding and interpretation of the  natural and cultural resources of western national parks."
