A Field Guide to Rock Art Symbols of the Greater Southwest
About this book
This is the only specifically designed key to the interpretation of American rock art. The Field Guide brings together 600 commentaries on specific symbols by over 100 archaeologists, researchers, and Native American informants. Covers the northern states of Mexico to Utah and from California to Colorado.
I think this is a classic read, no longer published, for those interested in native americans, writing, communication, symbols, non-textual literacy, the American West, and pre-history for the Americas. He was a thinker, not an "educated" author and in a place that ivy anthropologists and archeologists came to dominate, this is a varied approach from a non-traditional authority.
