Book: Indian Basketmakers of The Southwest
Paperback, Brand New
By: Larry Dalrymple
Dalrymple's text is not only well written but full of little details only someone who had spent time with the craftspeople would know. Arresting photos from historic sources as well as images of current baskets and portraits by Dalrymple of the basketmakers are all well chosen and forceful. The author takes a tribe, such as the Havasupai, examines the history of the tribe and its basketmaking, details materials and construction used, and profiles current basketmakers sympathetically. This book is a lovely addition to any arts or Native American book collection.
