Native American cultures have flourished in the Four Corners region for thousands of years, from the early shamans, to the Anasazi, to the tribes of today. Images incised or painted on rock by these people are diverse, mysterious, haunting, and inscrutable. Many occur in the southeastern part of Utah, in and around the Colorado Plateau. Utah may contain more world-class prehistoric rock art than any other region in North America over 7,500 sites have been reported.

Due to increased interest, more and more rock art sites in Utah are now being managed for public visitation by state, county, and federal agencies. Guide to Rock Art of the Utah Region is the most complete guide to these sites. With maps and directions, the book describes more than fifty sites with public access in Utah, the Arizona strip, southern Nevada, and the western edge of Colorado. In addition to site information, the author gives a comprehensive overview of rock art styles, and the cultural traditions that created them. Additional information is provided about preservation, conservation, and how to photograph rock art.
