A far-too-brief treatment of papermaking in pre-Columbia America. What's here is excellent and extremely interesting, but I wish Von Hagen had been able to collect more information, particularly more accounts by the Spanish of the vast libraries they destroyed (since those accounts are basically the only records of that cultural heritage). Wishes aside, the short book is a readable and very useful account of the materials and methods used in the production of American bark papers during the centuries before European conquest. ( )
