Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Based on more than 40 years association with Native American weavers, including 16 years in residence on Northwest Indian reservations, Schlick presents the artistic but also utilitarian baskets made by the people of the mid-Columbia River in the context of the lives of the people who created and used them. She also writes authoritatively about the gathering and processing of materials, and basketry techniques. Including 191 illustrations, 56 in color, this lovely volume is both a sourcebook for basket weavers and a reference for scholars, curators, and collectors.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
