0889223319 300 pages. Index. Bibliography. Illustrated with colour photos, black and white photos and images of the petroglyphs discussed. "Describes, among many other things, the solitary spiritual meditations of young people in the mountains, a form of education once essential to all those who wished to succeed in life with their particular talents... Opens a discussion of some of the issues in rock research that relate to 'notating' and 'writing' on the landscape, around the world and through the millennia. This landmark publication presents a well-researched hypothesis to explain the evolution of symbolic or iconic writing from sign language, trail signs and from the geometric and iconic imagery of the dreams and visions of shamans and neophyte hunters." - from dust jacket. Clean, bright and unmarked with negligible wear. A beautiful copy of this interesting work.
