The first full description of the most extraordinary concentration of prehistoric rock pictures in the New World. The authors believe that the Coso drawings demonstrate the development of a bighorn sheep cult that was based on hunting magic rituals and reached a greater ceremonial complexity than had previously been known in the Great Basin. The 130 drawings and photographs presented in this book are typical of the thousands of rock engravings to be found on the basalt cliffs of the astonishing canyons of the Coso Range.

Tours of the rock art in Little Petroglyph canyon are available through the Maturango Museum.
