BASKET TALES OF THE GRANDMOTHERS BY WILLIAM A. TURNBAUGH

Storytellers from over 100 Native American societies lend their voices to this fascinating 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 - whose earlier book Indian Baskets has been acclaimed "the bible of Indiand basket studies" - supplement these authentic Native accounts with their own engaging 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 cherished stories, informative commentaries, and exciting illustrations document the rich heritage of Native North American basketry as no other book has done.
