The Map Rock Of Idaho Decoded
The Map Rock of Idaho is not a typical rock art site. These petroglyphs represent a verifiable map of the surrounding area. The symbols, carved deeply and precisely into solid rock, all correlate with real physical locations in the local geographic area. The map was carved with visual reference points by people who lived in the Snake River Canyon of Idaho long before European settlers arrived, and we must see the area from their vantage points. The Map Rock of Idaho Decoded reads like a textbook crossed with a field guide, interspersed with the author's struggles to finally unravel this mystery. The author guides you through a step-by-step journey of the demonstrable landmarks and archaeoastronomical elements of the map. While this theory is written to be as simple and self-evident as possible (with illustrations and 36 full color photographs), the only way to truly grasp the relationship between the symbols on the Map Rock and the actual landmarks that the symbols represent, is to physically follow the map yourself. It is meant to be experienced firsthand in the natural setting of the Map Rock, and is not intended to be easily understood from the comforts of home.
