Rock Art of the American Indian


by Campbell Grant.

This book surveys the myriad rock paintings and carvings--numbering possibly some 15,000 sites--pecked into and painted onto boulders and rock surfaces throughout North America by its aboriginal artists. With photographs and drawings on virtually every page, this book presents the rock artists through the work they left--illustrating their extraordinarily diverse techniques, styles, and subjects. Meanings of the designs are discussed, and their roles in hunting or puberty rites interpreted. Major rock art sites are located, and methods of recording, preserving, and dating them are indicated. Author Grant has done rock art books on the Chumash Indians, the Coso Range, and Canyon de Chelly.

192 pages + 16 page color insert. Large-format.

ISBN-10: 0-89646-084-3. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-084-3.   Order #: VIST0084 paper$16.95

The Southern Ute Indians of Early Colorado
by Verner Z. Reed.

An early account of these inhabitants of southwestern Colorado, living in one of the most magnificent spots of the American continent. Aboriginal customs were still much practiced at the time this material was first published, in 1893. We are told of face painting, of nomadic lifeways, of matriarchal lineage of families, of medicine men, of wars with other Indian tribes, of courtship and family customs, of religion, and of the variance between Indian custom and white man's law. Reprinted from The Californian Illustrated Magazine.

Illustrations of shepherding, horses, war costumes, camp, family, chief, dance, and more. 20 pages.

ISBN-10: 0-89646-067-3. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-067-6. Order #: VIST0067 paper$3.95
