In every respect, The Cave Paintings of Baja California is a revelation. A timeless story of exploration and discovery that unlocks the secrets of a part of the world where few travelers have ever ventured.

Book-Of-The-Month Club
Crosby conveys a great sense of adventure … while highlighting the beauty and spirituality of the landscape and its art. His discovery of the rock paintings and some of the history of Baja California itself are skillfully woven into descriptions of the sites and interpretations of the art … Excellent maps, beautiful photographs both of the rock paintings and the people of the area, and illustrations clarifying the paintings enhance the text.

For both serious researchers and armchair travelers, there is Baja California historian and photographer Harry Crosby’s magnificent updated and expanded Cave Paintings of Baja California.

The Wall Street Journal
The Cave Paintings of Baja California
is a dramatic personal account of Harry Crosby’s search for, and discovery of, the prehistoric rock art hidden in caves and overhangs in the remote mountains of Baja California. Guided by local ranchers over more than a thousand miles of trails, Crosby found and photographed over 200 sites painted in the Great Mural style.

These Great Murals, created by an unknown people, are not only major cultural artifacts, but the most distinctive trove of rock art in North America. The scale of the paintings and their sensitive renderings of animals and people are unmatched in the New World and are comparable to the Paleolithic cave paintings of Europe.
