Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0821227580, Hardcover)The dazzling Indian trade blanket has become one of the hottest categories in collecting. Icons of Adirondack and Western décor, these stunning geometric-patterned blankets remain a staple of Native American life and are regularly featured in design and shelter magazines. CHASING RAINBOWS is the only book to trace both the fascinating story of the commercially produced wool trade blankets from the 1892-1942 "golden age" and the equally collectible 1910-1942 cotton Indian camp blankets. Illustrated throughout with hundreds of rare blankets, historic photographs of Native Americans and original blanket manufacturers' catalog pages, this definitive work advises where and what to collect and how to care for vintage blankets. The author, Barry Friedman, is known internationally as the ultimate authority on vintage Indian blankets and this book is unquestionably the collector's Bible. Formerly a highly successful Hollywood comedy writer, Friedman presents his information in a wildly entertaining style.
