In the words of the author, “This book is not a scientific explanation of rock art or its meaning.”
With that clear, the reader can enjoy this grand tour throughout the Southwest where one can find sites of prehistoric Indian petroglyphs and pictographs. The book is produced with slick pages of sharp photos and shares explicit directions on how to find these sites in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah. There’s just enough technical descriptions and the dating of such ancient art to make it all intriguing without being boring. Farnsworth’s guide is a good handbook for beginners interested in rock art.
