An integrated analysis of rock art styles throughout the western Colorado region, dating from pre-A.D. 1 to the middle of the twentieth century. This book brings together information from earlier studies and presents new information to shed light on how various cultures developed and interacted over time in diverse geographical settings. The author traces connections between rock art on canyon walls, rock shelters, and boulders and designs on pottery, basketry, and other artifacts, placing the art in cultural context. This book surveys the cultural history and rock art traditions of Archaic hunters and gatherers, Anasazi, Fremont, Navajo, Eastern Shoshoni, and Ute peoples. Regions of special interest include Mesa Verde and the Four Corners area, the Uncompahgre Plateau, Dinosaur National Monument and the canyons of the Green and Yampa rivers, and the Canyonlands of Utah and Colorado. An abundance of drawings, photographs, and maps illustrate the text and reveal the diversity of rock art forms and settings in the West.
