The Four Winds Guide to Indian Trade Goods and Replicasby Preston E. Miller
This is a companion volume to the authors' excellent book of last year, The Four Winds Guide to Indian Artifacts. In this new book, over 800 color photographs of trade goods to American Indians over the last hundred and fifty years, and more, are featured. These important cultural relics of American history are avidly collected today by museums and enthusiastic individuals alike. Trade beads, frontier goods, military goods, stone relics, photographs, paper goods, and modern replicas of some of the best items are identified in great detail, and the actual auction estimates and prices realized are included in the captions. The authors are traders at the Four Winds Indain Trading Post in St. Ignatius, Montana. Here they have gained over fifty years of experience with authenic goods, and they conduct annual mail/phone/fax auctions which have established the values recorded here. You cannot find a more accurate reference.
