303 pages, 305 b/w photos, 31 illustrations, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"

A full and complete introduction to the study of southwest American rock art. The author, who is not an 'expert', presents a well written, entertaining discourse on all the facets, theories, controversies and problems associated with rock art research. This book is eminently suitable for the novitiate, and a useful review for professionals to maintain their perspective. The second half of the book is divided into sections briefly summarizing the rock art found within the various National Monuments, National Parks, and areas of the southwestern United States. Each summary is written by a different author, who is knowledgable about their own particular area. Numerous photographs and a table detailing site accessibility create a useful field guide when visiting these areas.
