The Hopi have had a long tradition of weaving baskets and plaques. This book is filled with photographs and detailed descriptions of their baskets. In these pages, weavers open their lives to the outside world as a means of sharing an art form especially demanding of time and talent. The reader learns how plant materials are gathered, the long and painstaking process of preparation and dyeing, and how the weaving is done.
