Nature and adventure writer Craig Childs contemplates the beauty and meaning of rock art in his new book. “Tracing Time” celebrates the ancient communication on the caves, canyons and cliffs of the Colorado Plateau. Child’s conversations with elders, scholars and friends are interwoven with the observations of his own brilliant mind.
Colorado’s cliffs, canyons and caves are blanketed with ancient Indigenous rock art depicting people, animals and celestial events. In “Tracing Time,” explorer and nature writer Craig Childs, of Norwood, Colorado, meditates on their meaning and mystery. Childs joined Ryan Warner at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction for our series “Turn The Page.”
