“This superb book covers the wealth of Aboriginal rock art to be found in the ‘galleries’ of the vast Alligator Rivers region of the Northern Territory. It abounds in rich colour and black and white photographs of the various forms and styles of the region’s art and the environment in which it is found.
A highly descriptive and easily readable text includes chapters on rock art regions, the significance of rock paintings, the antiquity of rock art, factors contributing to deterioration of paintings, and tourism.”
