Lovely photos of amazing cave paintings! The narrative is not the main point of the book, but it does show the great care, passion, and professionalism of those who originally discovered these paintings and worked so hard to protect them and bring them under proper scientific study. To gaze at these paintings is to look into minds just like ours... only they happened to live 30,000 years ago! Mind-blowing...
