This book provides a holistic and humanistic approach to the study of basketry. It is a fundamental sourcebook.. a treasure chest of data.. Congratulations to the Shanks, and may their next two volumes be soon in the making. * Society for California Archaeology Newsletter * There hasn't been enough written about American Indian basketry, but Ralph Shanks' Indian Baskets of Central California fills a long-overdue void...The scholarly yet easy-to-read writing joins with superb color photographs to create this must-have work for the collector. * San Jose Mercury News * Indian Baskets of Central California is indeed the basketry book we have all been waiting for-- so long!
