More of an ethnographical study than a how-to manual. But it does have useful information, e.g. about the plants used. Some photo illustrations, native terms for the designs, plants, basket types etc, some cultural history of the tribes.

First words
Fifty years ago the many wild, mountain-hemmed valleys of Lake and Mendocino counties were each the home of one or several small Indian tribes entirely independent of all others, and speaking a language at best only partly intelligible to their nearest neighbors.
