Petroglyphs of California and Adjoining States

Julian H. Steward - 1929

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint
An excellent resource on the pteroglyphs of California as well as Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah,

The original plan of this paper was to present a large amount of unpublished material on petroglyphs and pictographs in California. The material however has appreciably expanded, and it has become evident that since there are certain types of petroglyphs which are not limited to California it is preferable to extend the survey to neighboring states rather than to delimit the area artificially by the political boundaries of the state and thus do violence to the study. Therefore Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and Lower California have been included in this survey, although the data are less full for these states.
