"Saskatchewan's largest rock carving (petroglyph) site, dating to between 1800 and 250 years ago, contains 340 carvings of bison, grizzly bear and human tracks, hand prints, human faces and other figures.

The carvings were made on a natural sandstone canvas with a cliff below and a spectacular view of the surrounding countryside.

Based on archaeological, ethnological and historical research, and comparative studies of rock art throughout the Great Plains, this book discusses the "who-what-why-when" questions provoked by this wonderful place of ancient art, "The Place of the Living Stone".

The authors also address the severe problems connected with erosion and neglect this nationally-significant heritage site is facing and how to deal with them."
Quote from back cover of "The Place of the Living Stone"
    The book is illustrated with photographs and line drawings of the rock carvings, maps of each of the three concentrations of carvings, drawings and photographs of art at other Plains sites, artifacts found in the excavations, and the setting and local environment.
