Description

A tradition that dates back almost ten thousand years, basketry is an integral aspect of Cherokee culture. In the mountains of Western North Carolina, stunning baskets are still made from rivercane, white oak and honeysuckle and dyed with roots and bark.

Cherokee Basketry describes the craft's forms, functions and methods and records the tradition's celebrated makers. This complex art- passed down from mothers to daughters- is a thread that bonds modern Native Americans to ancestors and traditional ways of life.

Author Anna Fariello, associate professor at Western Carolina University, reveals that baskets hold much more than food and clothing. Woven with the stories of those who produce and use them, these masterpieces remain a powerful testament to creativity and imagination. 160 Pages, paperback with over 125 images.
