Stories in Stone: Rock Art Pictures by Early Americans
A book about the rock art found on the canyon walls of the Coso Range, about 150 miles northeast of Los Angeles, California. The art is more than 3,000 years old and was made by Native Americans who lived and hunted in the area at the time. "An appealing book on a little-known subject." -- School Library Journal
