Plains Indian Knife Sheaths Jan 21, 2008
An excellent book for beginners to experts. Every element of construction and design is presented and detailed steps are prov ided. Some small details are not included but become readily apparent as one begins the first project. I will be continually using this book as a guide and reference.
Indian Hobbyist Literature Jan 3, 2007
The a.m. book's contents are harmless, the author's works shown in this book are hobbyists standards, they definitely lack the authochtoneous touch. Nice guide for beginning and advanced American Indian Hobbyists. For the more serious reader it lacks basic informations needed when describing and picturing objects as knife cases. The quality of the book itself is poor, pages come loose easily.
