This book brings into focus facets of pre­ historic rock art in the Kumaon Himalayan area, which is comparatively unknown. The materials incorporated in this volume are quite distinctive and definitely new. The rock paintings as noticed in this area show as usual man and nature relationship in a simplistic representation. The most interesting paintings found in the Kumaon region are the dancing scenes, which are in large varieties followed by drum-beating figures, hunters and others.The author discusses the subject matter, the technique, the style and the state of preservation of rock art of the region along with artistic merit and motivation of the artist of pre-historic time in a simple language.
