“The delightful and beautiful dolls in this book represent many different time periods, methods of construction, regions of North America, and uses; they are uniform only in their depictions of Native American people. Some of the dolls were lovingly made by family members for their children to enjoy and/or to be a learning device for their very personal life styles. Others were made as commercial ventures to sell to tourists, and some were advertising pieces themselves. Over time, many have lost their original significance and become interesting to present-day people for very different reasons.
Tribes represented include Apache to Zuni and every tribe in between.
