Weavers of Tradition and Beauty: Basketmakers of the Great Basin

by

Weavers of Tradition and Beauty: Basketmakers of the Great Basin Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Weavers of Tradition and Beauty presents new information on contemporary Native American basketry of the Great Basin, largely from the viewpoint of the weavers themselves. Baskets - and the people who weave them - have always been revered and honored by Native Americans. Fulkerson and Curtis depict, in vivid text and both full color and black-and-white photographs, how their art prevails - even over adverse environmental, social, and economic conditions.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 133-134) and index.
