Indian Basketmakers of California and the Great Basin: The Art and Fine Tradition

Larry Dalrymple

This book documents the current revival and basketry from its leading practitioners, including basketmakers from the Hupa, Yurok, Karuk, Tolowa, Western Mono (Monache) of northern California, and the Great Basin tribes, including the Western Shoshone, Northern Paiute, Washoe, and Chemehuevi.


Larry Dalrymple has been a collector of Indian baskets for more than two decades. He is an educational consultant who lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.


"These strong, handsome, informative, and attractive books give penetrating views of . . . the richness of the traditions, the current state of the art, and the beauty of the products. . . . Arresting photos from historic sources as well as images of current baskets and portraits by Dalrymple of the basketmakers are all well chosen and forceful."
