The Mitchell Plateau area in Western Australia's Kimberley region has some of the world's most spectacular and ancient rock art, but much of it is remote and rarely seen. This lavishly illustrated book has more than 600 images of the art and its setting. All images have been approved for publication by the Wunambal Gaambera traditional owners. It includes a foreword by Dr Ian Crawford and a comprehensive introduction covering early descriptions of the art and brief summaries of archaeology, geology and the importance of past sea-level changes. This is the first of 3 volumes covering the rock art of the vast Kimberley region, the culmination of 20 years of documentation and photography by the author while back-packing through some of the most formidable, remote and beautiful country in Australia.
