"Archaeology and Rock Art... advances our knowledge of early human societies in eastern California... Although the vast California/Great Basin literature includes myriad reports of 'archaeological' or rock-art research, it is rare to find the two so thoroughly and so effectively integrated. In this sense and many others, Garfinkel has produced a book worthy of emulation."
           --   Michael Moratto, Senior Archaeologist, Applied Earthworks, Inc.

"An important follow-up work to our seminal contribution on Coso rock art. For all those who have an interest in this subject, this is a must read. Fascinating, well written, and informative".
           --   J. Kenneth Pringle, co-author, Rock Drawings of the Coso Range

"The Southern Nevada are known primarily as a vacation area today, with their archaeological importance virtually unknown. Dr Garfinkel does an outstanding job of correcting this perception, integrating archaeological and ethnographic data from a wide variety of sources to create a picture of human occupation and population movement here on the southwestern edge of the Great Basin. This book is certainly destined to become the standard work on the area".
           --   Alexander K. Rogers, Curator of Archaeology, Maturango Museum
