This book contains photographs taken over a period of more than 10 years by two Johannesburg businessmen, whose hobby is to search out and record the pictures on the rocks of Southern Africa. They selected from more than 20,000 slides and wrote commentary about then without attempting to delve too deeply into the identity of the artists or the history of their people. They let the paintings tell the story. Written in 1970, the maps are somewhat dated. Rhodesia is now Zambia, etc. but the details are unique. Forward is by Professor Raymond A. Dart. Book is sectioned by types of drawings: animals, people, clothing, dances and ceremonies, mythology, etc.
