Description: A guide to Indian weaving, knitting, and basketry. The mild climate, readily accessible natural resources, and in particular the almost superabundance of food enabled the early northwest people both the opportunity to effectively exploit their environment and leisure time to develop an elaborate art form. Perhaps no aspect of aboriginal culture better illustrates their resourcefulness, skill, and artistic talent than the development of textile crafts.
