Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979378001, Hardcover)

This subject is brought together and treated in depth for the first time. Drawing on the best scholarship of others and extensive personal research, the author uncovers the technology and the significance of paint in early Native California. Hundreds of rare photographs parallel the text. Many are of painted 19th century Indians. Others in full color depict an array of ochre-covered artifacts. Images from walls of remote caves transport the reader to a California long past and little known.
