From the Back Cover

“The intricate art of basket weaving, nearly 8,000 years old in the Southwest, is still practiced by many Indians of the region.  Traditions in Transition gives an historical overview of the subject, with essays on plants, tools, and techniques used, and then takes a look at basket weaving among the Pueblo, Hopi, Navajo, Apache, Pima and Papago, and Yavapai, Havasupai, and Hualapai groups as well as the recent phenomenon of cross-cultural basket weaving.  Black-and-white and full color photographs of baskets and basket weavers, with quotes from the weavers themselves, vividly document the fact that this traditional art is still practiced and continues to evolve among Indians of the Southwest.”
