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 I: The Animals and the Carvers covers the essentials of the art form, such as the purposes of fetishes and the different types being carved at Zuni Pueblo today. Along with details about the animals and what they represent, noted Indian trader Kent McManis (owner of Grey Dog Trading Co. in Tucson, Arizona) discusses the process of carving and introduces some of the carvers who have helped to make fetish carving such a vital and exciting part of Native American arts and crafts in the twentieth century.

Fully illustrated with 245 fetishes in full color. Plus charts, map, and family trees.
