Rock Art is an in-depth guide to rock art across the U.S., focusing on the cultural, and historical contexts in which rock art was made.
In the first half, author Stewart M. Green describes in great detail how rock art is created, the various groups who created rock art (across the world as well as the U.S.), the archeological process of dating and interpreting these works, and methods used to preserve these significant artworks.
The second half provides a thorough list of sites all through the U.S. where rock art can be viewed publicly. Though this isn't necessarily a travel guide, Green provides contact information and some detail about numerous rock art sites on public lands.
This is a great choice for those interested in the archeological and anthropological work that goes into understanding and interpreting this ancient art form. Features detailed color photos throughout.
