Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melinda Medley Sprinkle
Basketweaving is more than just a craft made for decoration. To the California Indians, it's a connection to the way life once was. Ancestors prepared baskets for many practical uses, including cooking, baby cradles, hats, and storing food. Decedents of this Native American culture, as well as the author, are very proud of and dedicated to preserving this integral part of their past. Along with elaborately detailed full-color photographs, the reader follows an eleven-year-old Western Mono Indian and her relatives through the process of gathering and preparing needed plants, shaping and making the basket, and attending the annual gathering of the California Indian Basketweavers Association. Although basketmaking is very complicated and time consuming, the tradition still lives. Besides learning about basketmaking, the author's use of personal text shows the excitement and joy of working together to preserve a special part of the California Indian life. The book also includes a preface, word list, and suggestions for further reading.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6Text and photographs combine to explain the tradition of basket weaving as carried on among the Native American tribes of California. Readers follow Carly Tex, an 11-year-old Western Mono, to school, to lessons in traditional basket weaving, and to many stops along the way. Carly and her relatives are shown to be very much a part of modern America, as well as a continuing bridge between their own cultural past and the future. Although basket weaving, from the gathering and preparing of materials to the final product, is the main focus of the book, many other traditions are touched uponeven some that have been newly adopted from other native tribes. Clear, bright full-color photographs appear on every page, filled with warmth and showing the pride Carly and her family feel about difficult tasks done well. A few black-and-white drawings supplement the photographs. Unfortunately, some of the technical aspects of preparing the weaving materials are too complicated for young non-weavers to follow from the text alone, and illustrations of these techniques are not included.Darcy Schild, Schwegler Elementary School, Lawrence, KS
