From the back cover:

The two volumes of A Guide to Zuni Fetishes and Carvings form the best introduction to the world of Zuni fetishes available today. Volume II: The Materials and the Carvers continues with vital information on the many stones used by the makers of these incredible art pieces. From traditional New Mexican turquoise to newly introduced gaspeite from Australia, from antler to zebra stone, Kent McManis (owner of Grey Dog Trading Co.) gives important details and sources of just about every material the collector is likely to encounter. In addition, McManis discusses twelve more families with long carving traditions.

Over 400 fetishes from dozens of materials pictured in full color. Detailed family trees cross-referenced with those in Volume I. Bibliography. Fully indexed.
