Petroglyphs and Pueblo Myths of the Rio Grande, Carol Patterson-Rudolph
1990, Avanyu Publishing, Inc., paper
132 pages, 10 color plates, 20 b/w photos, 8" x 10"

This new book on the ancient rock art of the Indians of the Middle Rio Grande Valley will be of interest both to scholars and to the growing number of general readers who enjoy the study of petroglyphs. The author not only describes individual rock art symbols but focuses on their meaning. When read together, she explains, the symbols relate stories and myths that continue to the present among New Mexico's Pueblo people and inform their social structure and cosmology. Pueblo symbology, according to the author, is the functional equivalent of a language system that can elucidate the conciousness of the Pueblo people.
