Overview

Songs of Ancient Journeys: Animals in Rock Art is a collection of fourteen short poems inspired by animals depicted in the rock art of the American southwest. Humans of this region have left innumerable images on rock surfaces, depicting the creatures native to this mystic landscape. The origins of these mysterious drawings are still unknown.

This short book of poetry, illustrated with color photographs of Southwestern rock art, delivers imaginative testimonials in the voices of the depicted animals. The poems are accompanied by a series of notes that describe the possible meanings of the images in Native American mythology.

This project is a melodic blend of poetry, Native American culture, and natural history. Songs of Ancient Journeys will inspire young readers to imagine what these beautiful and mysterious images represented to the people who made them. Illustrated with color photographs.
