Product description

Indian Crafts and Skills provides an excellent study of American Indian handiwork, both practical and artistic. This guide not only describes the skills Indians developed, but it also gives specific instructions for creating many kinds of Indian handiwork. The author, a skilled craftsman, explains the various types of shelters and tools used by the Indians, as well as weapons of warfare and hunting. Trapping and tracking are vividly described, complete with descriptions to help the reader identify almost every kind of wild animal track. Step-by-step, concise, easy-to-read instructions will tell you all you need to know about re-creating the Indian way of life. Not only will you explore the practical aspects of Indian livelihood, but you will also discover the beauty and joy of the Indian culture. This book is supplemented with a complete list of reference books and supply sources to help in creating the magic and mystery of Indian handiwork.
