Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Because the authors are deciphering mindset from pictures, they must use all the academic justifications, which can slow down the reading a bit. But they do succeed, with the help of present day San informers (double checked meticulously), in bringing to life both mindset and practices of this ancient people through their wonderful art. Well worth the time for those of us passionate about rock art.

Best book on San paintings 29 Jan. 2014
By Debra Barnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an exceptionally well researched and documented account if how San paintings in different parts of Southern Africa were first interpreted and recorded. If you are planing a trip to see these paintings this book is a must read. If you are interested in primitive cave drawings all over the globe, thus is a must read. If you want a fascinating look at early man and shamanistic rituals, this book is for you. Well written with beautiful pictures of the drawings and excellent descriptions of the languages (click language).

There are relatively few books available on these people and their art.
This writer is an expert on them. Enjoy!

Excellent book, well written. Blend of hypothesis and solid research, so it made a convincing argument. You should read it.
