The Jeffers Petroglyphs Site is one of the oldest and largest surviving concentrations of Native American rock art in the Upper Midwest of the United States. The rock face of this site is covered with representations of animals, humans, dream symbols, hunting and warfare motifs, shamanic symbols, mythic figures, geometric forms, and other subjects.
In this book, Kevin Callahan offers readers a well-rounded survey and analysis of the site. He has geared his text for both the general rock art enthusiast as well as the scholar, dividing it into sections on Native American belief systems, motifs and symbols depicted at the site, analysis of the images, as well as a "Frequently Asked Questions" section. The book contains numerous drawings and photographs and a large removable map that can be used as a walking guide for site visitors.
Kevin L. Callahan has a Masters Degree in Anthropology from the University of Minnesota with an emphasis in archaeology and international rock art studies. He has taught courses on the anthropology of rock art at the University of Minnesota and has done research regarding the rock art of the Upper Midwest, Scotland, and Hawaii.
