Publication Date: February 15, 2016



An anthology by noted Southwest writers and rock art experts on the destruction of rock art sites by development, vandalism, and increasing visitation. Most rock art books look at the imagery as two dimensionalrestricted to the icons and symbols as carved on the rock face. In reality, the landscape is a vital clue, not only these people collectively, but also these people as individuals. The canyon country does not contain sites and panels but rather a large inter-connected cultural landscape.
