Petroglyphs of Southeast Colorado and the Oklahoma Panhandle, William McGlone, Ted Barker & Phil Leonard
1994, Mithras Inc., paper
118 pages, 75 color & 210 b/w photos, 57 figures & 2 tables, 6-3/4" x 9-3/4"
A very nice photographic survey of the (mostly) petroglyphic rock art of southeastern Colorado south of the Arkansas River on down to the Cimarron River in northwestern Kansas. The authors divide their book into chapters titled Style and Chronology, Pecked Abstract, Pecked Pictorial, and Plains Biographic, as well as Parallel Lines, and Cowboys and Settlers. The chapter on Archaeoastronomy photographically explores and details the light and shadow interaction with petroglyphs at both Anubis Cave and Crack Cave. The chapter on Public Sites accessible for viewing by the general public is very important for the Code of Conduct presented by the authors. Chapters like this one should be required for every rock art book published in the forseeable future, in an effort to educate visitors and eliminate the impact that all of us are making on these very fragile and rapidly disappearing places.
