Explore the stunning diversity of North American Indian and Eskimo baskets, from little-known native basketry to the more common forms.

More than 175 regional and tribal styles are documented in an easy-to-use and beautifully illustrated format.
Readers will be able to identify their own Indian baskets using this guide's standardized terminology, identification keys, glossary, maps, and bibliographies. Hundreds of baskets were photographed for this volume in color and in black-and-white. Many are from the famous and unparalleled collection of the Peabody Museum of Harvard University where the authors began their basketry research in the 1970s.
