Synopsis: For hundreds of years Indian weavers throughout western North America have created baskets that are stunning works of art as well as utilitarian objects used for collecting, carrying and a variety of other activities.

This concise, readable book describes the elements that make these baskets works of art. The careful preparation of roots and grasses, the painstaking stitching of coils, the subtle use of vegetable dyes, and the skillful integration if designs and background are all described in this book.
