Rock Art explores the fascinating history of ancient human-made stone markings that have puzzled historians, archaeologists, and hikers alike for centuries.

How was rock art made—and, more importantly, why? These questions and more are addressed in this comprehensive guide, complete with full-color images and travel listings. Look inside to find:

  • Prehistories and histories of the cultures who created these images and etchings.
  • Detailed descriptions of the tools, techniques, and methods used to create rock art.
  • Best practices and techniques for photographing these alluring rock images.
  • Extensive list of rock art sites across the United States.
