While brief, this book would be of value even if the only part you read was the biography of Elsie Allen. But in addition you can learn to make baskets, using the numerous drawings and photographs of the steps . There is a section on gathering, dyeing, and preparing natural materials; detailed instructions for making coiled and twined baskets and baby baskets; and a brief description of feather baskets (of course, possession of songbird feathers is against US law now).
