Overview

Don't miss this exciting encore to Charles Overstreet's award winning first book. Book II follows the format of the highly successful first book, but provides a completely new set of projects to explore. The new handbook focuses on arts, crafts and accoutrements made and used by the Plains and Mountain Indians of North America. The historical information accompanying each project, written in the author's entertaining, down to earth style, is fascinating to read. And, above all, this is a how-to book; using this guide's easy to follow instructions and illustrations makes replication of these traditional items a simple and enjoyable task.

Employing both traditional and modern methods, this manual features 40 projects ranging from a Blackfoot Fish Trap to a Wolf Hat in the style of the Wind River Shoshone. The book provides the hobbyist with a good, varied selection of items that can be made relatively inexpensively. The author has carefully researched each project and consulted with members of various Indian tribes to assure their authenticity. He provides historical background on the use and significance of each piece.
