Acerca de


This handbook thoroughly explores the stunning diversity of North American Indian and Eskimo baskets. It includes less well-known native basketry in addition to the more common forms. This colorful book combines basket manufacture techniques, raw materials, forms, and decoration with information on native lifeways. More than 175 regional and tribal styles are documented in an easy-to-use and beautifully illustrated format. Readers will be able to identify their own Indian baskets. The book's standardized terminology, identification keys, glossary, maps, and bibliographies add to its broad appeal. Hundreds of baskets were photographed for this volume in color and in black-and-white. Many are from the famous and unparallel collection of the Peabody Museum of Harvard University where the authors began their basketry research in the 1970's.

From Library Journal:

Baskets are important cultural artifacts that were created to serve the needs of daily living. This study examines the diversity of North American Indian and Eskimo baskets in the context of their makers' lives. The first section is a showcase containing 120 color plates which exhibit the aesthetic richness of baskets. Following is a general overview of the history, attributes, care, and conservation of North American baskets. The final section categorizes by region, culture, and tribe these storage, food gathering, and ceremonial baskets. Both comprehensive and authoritative, this handbook is highly recommended for academic libraries and public libraries with extensive craft or North American Indian collections.
