Here is some information about the book: This volume explores and discusses the multifaceted role basketry has played in the material and nonmaterial culture of the tribes of North America. This diligent compilation of information on the hand production of basketry by significant tribes in different geographical areas of the US and Canada is replete with black-and-white pictures of 20th-century baskets. An extensive bibliography at the end of each chapter includes materials from the historical past as well as references to circumstances that encouraged or discouraged the creation of basketry from indigenous materials by Native American groups. Contributors to this work are well versed in their respective areas. The book should be a value to artists, historians, and Native American scholars who wish a rather concise, contemporary overview of North American Indian basketry. Usually this type of detailed information is contained only in a portion of a volume dealing with a specific tribe or region. A recommended reference tool for scholars, collectors, and lay persons wishing to familiarize themselves with this aspect of Native American material culture. American Indian Quarterly
