A journey through this volume is an experience that will transport the reader to places unknown, compliments or Malotki's extraordinary photography, elegant prose, and original insights that only someone with his field acumen could produce. This intelligent, well-crafted synopsis fills a void in the rock art literature of the Southwest. It is destined to become a classic. --Henry Wallace, Senior Research Archaeologist, Center for Desert Archaelogy
This is more than a collection of amazing, beautiful, and sensitively-photographed images--most never seen before. As if that was not enough, Malotki also gives us a wide-ranging, well-researched analysis and interpretation of those Arizona images, setting them into the worldwide corpus and discourse of rock art. Whatever one's level of interest and knowledge of the subject, this book will be a revelation of the marvel--and deep importance--or human art making. --Ellen Dissanayake, Author of Homo Aestheticus: Where Art Comes From and Why

Top Customer Reviews
I live in both Virginia and Colorado, and drive back and forth two or three times each year with dog and various family members. Malotki's books always come along, both ways. They are big books, but they still make the trips back and forth between the East Coast and Colorado to remain within easy reach in each house. In the past three years I have bought many dozens of books on rock art and archaeology. These beautiful books by Ekkehart Malotki are the very best I have. I tell everyone I know that if they are going to buy just one book on rock art in the American Southwest: get one of Ekkehart Malotki's. If you are going to Arizona, this is THE choice. Better than five star!
