This volume contains eight papers on prehistoric and historic rock art of the Chihuahuan Desert borderlands, and includes description and analyses of both petroglyphic and pictographic art. Included in this work are examples of rock art in very poorly studied areas of the borderlands, such as far northern Coahuila, northwestern Nuevo Leon, and northwestern Chihuahua, as well as the Texas Big Bend. Among the research issues addressed are symbolism in cultural systems, ritual use of landscapes, cultural and temporal affiliations, systems of classification, and ceremonial implications.

Papers in this volume were presented at the First Trans-Pecos Rock Art Symposium at Alpine, Texas, February 17-19, 1995:
