Introduction: Where Lifeways Endure by Patrick Houlihan

Basketry: From Foundations Past by Jerold L. Collings

Weaving: The Woven Spirit by Sarah Nestor

Pottery: The Ceramic Tradition by Jonathan Batkin

Harmony by Hand combines the talents and expertise of many.  An informative text, historical photos, spectacular views by some of the Southwest’s best-known photographers, and exquisite portfolios of art work give a comprehensive view of this rugged land and its native peoples.  Fully expressed is a respect and appreciation for magnificent artistry.

More from The Back Cover:

In their basketry, weaving, and pottery, the Southwest’s Indian people carry forth a heritage of artistic traditions. They express a bond to the land and to their past.  Harmony by Hand presents this heritage.  Masterpieces of each art form are collected here in exquisite reproduction, fully enhanced by expert discussion, historical photography, and spectacular images of the Southwest.  A portrait vividly unfolds of a land, its history, and the struggles of its peoples—a place where landscapes and lifeways converge.
