A study of rock art in the Anza-Borrego State Park of southern California.
The author provides a general ethnographic overview of the Anza-Borrego Desert, covering the Cahuilla, Cupeno, Kumeyaay, and Northern Diegueno.
The author discusses Indian ritual, initiations, cosmology, and shamanism, as they relate to the rock art.
The pictures are professionally photographed, capturing the atmosphere and mood of each rock art site.
This is easily one of the finest and most beautiful of the rock art books produced in the last 10 years.
