Taking Root in Rocky Soil
Perspectives No. 387
Bob Bahr's new book, Taking Root in Rocky Soil, documents the history of creative expression in the remote area of the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming. Humankind’s unrelenting need to make art is always a fascinating subject. Tracing the different forms that artistic expression has taken in this remote area of Wyoming gives us a history of art not unlike that seen all over the world, and yet, at the same time, unique to this secluded western mountain range.
Taking Root in Rocky Soil: 3,000 Years of Art in the Wind River Mountains shows us the diversity of art created in one unique area of America, creativity born of necessity and inspiration over 3,000 years. In it is artwork used to convey messages for survival and artwork created in witness to beauty.
