In this primarily pictorial guide with explanatory captions, Charles Miles has organized photographs of over two thousand examples of all of the major kinds of North American native-made and -used artifacts, and presents them under several functional headings. Tools, weapons, pottery, basketry, clothing, boats, and ceremonial regalia are shown, often in close-ups which present technical details of manufacture rarely found in books on this subject.
