Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For thousands of years the Indians of the Northeast lived by their wits, fabricating the articles needed for daily life from materials they found in nature. Now you can reproduce these authentic objects by following the clear, step-by-step instructions in this richly illustrated book. Indian Handcrafts explains how each object evolved, how it was used, and what tools and materials you need to re-create it. C. Keith Wilbur carefully researched the methods described and actually made and tested each of the handcrafts. All the necessary supplies, he says, can be found free of charge, in the great outdoors - just as the Indians did! You can learn how to shape a duck decoy from dried cat-o-nine tails, bend and lash green saplings to form a wigwam frame, use porcupine quills to apply natural dyes to your handmade moccasins, build a rubbing stick so you can start campfires 'from scratch' and much more. This intriguing book preserves authentic Indian handcraft methods and serves as an enduring tribute to Native American ingenuity and craftsmanship. (8 1/2 x 11, 144 pages, illustrations)

Synopsis:

Instructions for scores of ancient handcrafts — nearly lost to time — are presented in this easy-to-follow book. Written and hand lettered by the author — a physician, artist, and historian — this intriguing volume not only preserves Indian handcraft methods but also serves as an enduring tribute to Native American ingenuity and craftsmanship. Like all titles in the illustrated Living History series, this book — especially created for grades 5 to 10 — exposes readers to little-known aspects of American history and culture. Indian Handcrafts is carefully researched for authentic detail and accurately illustrated to help young readers have fun discovering America's earliest history and development.

Synopsis:

Indian Handcrafts explains how each object evolved, how it was used, and what tools and materials you need to re-create it.
