Product Information


Abstract and beautiful patterns can be found scratched into rocks all over the American southwest. If you have ever wondered just what those seemingly esoteric carvings might mean, this slim, lightweight field guide is just what you need. The author, Alex Patterson, sheds light on possible interpretations of Southwestern rock art, drawing on the work of anthropologists, archaeologists, and Native American tribes. The reader can easily find the one or several of the 500 illustrations that most closely match the rock art symbol in question. Patterson emphasizes the tentative nature of the interpretations and has included an index by neutral archaeological description as well as complete documentation of every excerpted comment. The range of the book is from the northern states of Mexico to Utah and from California to Colorado.


  • Organized by tentative meaning or description
  • Pictoral key at the beginning
  • Index by neutral archaeological description
