Spirits of the Stone is a tribute to ancient artists and their creations in stone, as documented by Ming and Garry Adams, owners of the Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch. These magical images continue to mystify and inspire us with their power and beauty. We hope this book will promote more of an awareness of the unique treasures the ancients left behind and help us understand the importance of preserving their legacy.
“An elegant weaving of landscape and ancient lives.”--Craig Childs, author of House of Rain and Finders Keepers
“Garry & Ming Adams have painstakingly explored the canyons, caves, draws and crannies of the Colorado Plateau with their cameras to give spectacular witness to the message left by the artists who flourished here centuries ago. That message, common to everyone who has shared this planet since the beginning of Time, simply says, I was here.” – Jeffrey Price, author of the novel Improbable Fortunes, co-screenwriter of Who Framed Roger Rabbit
“This book captures the Rock Art that identifies who we are and where we came from." – Leroy Lewis, Hopi Elder of First Mesa and author of A Hopi Flute Clan Migration Story
“Simply one of the best collections of Rock Art photography by anyone anywhere. A delight for the eye and the spirit.” – William de Buys, author of A Great Aridness
