The Seminole: Patchworkers of the Evergladesby Rachel A. Koestler-Grack
Just imagine living in the swampy Florida wilderness, with alligators, snakes, and mosquitoes as neighbors. For the Seminole, living far away from other people was a normal way of life. They traveled great distances to trade alligator skins and bird feathers for food, guns, and cotton cloth. To make the cloth last from one trip to the next, Seminole women sewed together scraps of cloth. In time, sewing patchwork became an art that has lasted for many years.
