I was in Val Verde County. (in Southwest Texas) with a group of friends. When we walked into Fate Bell Shelter I saw my first cave paintings. I did not realize at the time that this chance encounter would change my life forever. A commitment to photograph ing the rare and endangered rock art of the lower Pecos River area was born that day. It grew to maturity when plans were conceived to impound the Rio Grande below the mouths of the Devils and Pecos rivers. and I realized the loss that loomed ahead. Many of the photo graphs of the classic Pecos River style pictographs in this book were taken before Amistad Dam was completed in 1969 and scores of sites were inundated. I will always regret that I did not have time to cap ture all of them on film. Hundreds, unphotographed, are lost forever. While working on the book, Ancient Texans, I met my friend and colleague, Dr. Solveig Turpin. She and her team from the University of Texas at Austin were dedicated to the task of tracking down previ ously unrecorded pictograph sites. In the ten years since they had be gun their work at Seminole Canyon State Historical Park, the inventory of cave paintings had doubled in Val Verde County. They were extend ing their search into northern Mexico. We soon became a team documenting cave paintings wherever they could be found. We lugged equipment up mountains, down canyons, across rivers, and through the brush in Texas and Mexico. Though it was hard work, each new find of art from antiquity provided reward enough. This photographic essay is the culmination of my forty year love affair with the Pecos River rock art. The sixty~six color plates are only a mere fraction of the thousands of negatives in my collection. The text and captions are the result of thousands of hours of scholarly research, observation, and contemplation. Through pictures and words. we hope to convey to you the sense of these long~vanished people whom we have come to know and respect, people who sought answers to many of the same questions we ask today, people who would speak to us through their art~if only we could hear them. As you read this book, listen, perhaps you will be the one to whom they speak. "~Jim Zintgraff. Seller Inventory # 3081104
