Rock Art of the Grand Canyon Region Book Cover

Over the past 25 years Don Christiansen has worked in cooperation with co-authors
Jerry Dickey, and Steven M. Freers, the Kaibab National Forest, Grand Canyon National Park, Bureau of Land Management/Arizona Strip, and the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument to analyze the hard data and to form a comprehensive overview of the 5,000 years of Native American art painted and engraved on the walls and boulders within the greater Grand Canyon region.  His visually stunning book Rock Art of the Grand Canyon Region opens a window to the past within the majestic Grand Canyon region rarely seen by the millions of visitors who visit this area annually. It is a feast to both the serious rock art researcher and to the general public who may not be aware of the enticing and elaborately rich rock art found in some of the more remote areas within this spectacular landscape.
