Indian Basketmakers of the Southwest

The Living Art and Fine Tradition

Larry Dalrymple, Author

Recently there has been an electrifying basket renaissance across much of the Southwest that is documented in this volume. It includes the contemporary baskets and basketmaking traditions of southwestern tribes including the Haulapai, Havasupai, Yavapai, Western Apache, the Jicarilla Apache, the Ute, San Juan Paiute, Navajo, the Tohono O'odham, Akimel O'odham, the Pueblos of New Mexico, and Hopi of Arizona.


"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."
