I used to go to the top of that hill, Red Mountain, and look down...the valley was sure pretty...there was lots of trees then. Now there's too many houses
---Mollie Jackson
To the weavers: Hilda Manuel, Mollie Jackson, Rea Barber, Madeline Lewis, Marie Lehi and her daughters
First words
The traditional land of the Pomo was the valley of the Russian River, the lake district around Clear Lake, and the coastal communities on the Pacific.
[Introduction] I have traveled through Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and California, sitting on the earth, in modern kitchens and in meeting houses, weaving many kinds of baskets.
[Preface] This book is written, not only for women and men who live on the land, but also for collectors and admirers of American Indian crafts, that they may further appreciate the Indian basket with an understanding of the complexities of weaving.
[Foreward] Recurrent revivals of interest in crafts over the past hundred years, and the one now in progress, are evidence that we too, in the midst of abundance, can sense a form of cultural deprivation resulting from the supplanting of handicrafts by the cheap products of mechanized industry.
