The Lonesome Gods


The Lonesome Gods is the title of one of the prolific western writer, Louis L'Amour's last books. In it L'Amour comments that in days gone by the Ancient Ones who walked this land before us, worshiped their Gods, the land and nature. They created what we know as petroglyphs. We no longer fully understand the symbolism of each of these mysterious drawings. Many of us have moved far from being in touch with our sacred earth. The Gods are awaiting our return. We need not be lonesome anymore.

No, I haven't read that one yet! I will put it on my "to read" list! Have you seen the petroglyphs at Joshua Tree? They are over by the Barker Dam turnout and hike. Awesome!
