Canyon de Chelly is a vital part of the rich tradition and changes of the diverse Native American cultures of Four Corners region. Three excellent books, each offers extensive references:
- Campbell Grant's Canyon de Chelly: Its People and Rock Art 1(978) remains the best guide to Canyon de Chelly's extensive rock art.
- Sally Cole's Legacy on Stone: Rock Art of the Colorado Plateau and Four Corners Region (2009 revised-updated). Well-informed and comprehensive overview.
- Ekkehart Malotki's Rock Art of Arizona: Art for Life’s Sake (2007). With an excellent chapter considering and illuminating the rock art of Northeast Arizona.
