This splendid reference is the result of the author's ten years spent researching in archives, photographing artifacts, and conducting interviews with elders and artists, excerpts of which are interspersed throughout the information-packed text. Jewelry, beadwork, and ceremonial regalia are presented in 1,200-plus illustrations (about 820 in color), including three eight-page gatefolds; diagrams of jewelry techniques and regional maps are also included. Though it makes no claim to be comprehensive, the scope is expansive, extending from the Arctic Circle to northern Mexico and from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and including a full spectrum of ornamental artwork. The author's previous work The History of Beads is well regarded; and this authoritative and beautiful reference will no doubt stand equal to it.
