"Definitely the best book on the subject of rock art ever written."
Desmond Morris, author of The Naked Ape

The earliest rock art is geometric or abstract. Why and how did humans begin to make marks, and what does this tell us about the early human mind? Early Rock Art of the American West, with some two hundred striking color images, explores the subject from the perspectives of ethology, evolutionary biology, cognitive archaeology, and the psychology of artmaking.
