Indian Basketmakers of California and the Great Basin

The Art and Fine Tradition

Larry Dalrymple, Author

Indian Basketmakers detail the recent basketmaking revival by featuring the work of tribes including the Hupa, Yurok, Karuk, Tolowa, Western Mono (Monache) of northern California, and Great Basin tribes including the Western Shoshone, Northern Paiute, Washoe, and Chemehuevi.


"These strong, handsome, informative and attractive books give penetrating views of the richness of the traditions, the current state of the art and the beauty of the products. 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."
