Painted Rocks

Author: Ruth Alter

The Piedras Pintadas rock art in the Rancho Bernardo area of San Diego County is unique among the rock art styles found in southern California. Anthropologists call this rock art “Rancho Bernardo Style.” It occurs primarily within Kumeyaay territory and is known for its maze-like design.

Discover the Piedras Pintadas archaeological site through the eyes of a young girl and her guide. This informative book includes information on how the Kumeyaay lived, built their homes, played games, made meals, a recipe for shawii, how they made clay pots, their bow construction and hunting implements, stone tools, rock art, their legends, a glossary of Kumeyaay words and more. It is an excellent resource for teachers and children.
