Abstract

“Jamie Hampson has produced a landmark study of Trans-Pecos rock art that moves the field significantly further forward and will prove a key resource in North American – and global – rock art studies. Using a wide range of evidence, he convincingly shows how the art can most profitably be understood from an ‘insider’ perspective grounded in the ethnography of relevant Native American groups and informed more broadly by parallel studies elsewhere in the world, notably southern Africa. Elegantly and accessibly written, it deserves a place on the bookshelves of anyone with interests in rock art or the North American past.”

– Professor Peter Mitchell, University of Oxford
