Summary
"Storytellers from over 100 Native American societies lend their voices to this collection of "grandmother's basket tales." From creation myths to ghost stories and fables, Indian baskets provide the theme for over 250 traditional selections, each recounted in the words of its narrator. The Turnbaughs supplement these authentic Native accounts with their own introductions." "More than 280 handsome and historic photographs celebrate the traditional beauty and lore of American Indian basketry. They include many original and never-before-published images that depict Native artisans and their baskets." "Woven together into one unique volume, these stories, commentaries, and illustrations document the rich heritage of Native North American basketry as no other book has done."--BOOK JACKET
