Native American Art
by David W. Penney and George C. Longfish

Native American arts and crafts are enjoying renewed appreciation as a vital part of America's cultural heritage. This volume celebrates the richness and diversity of this centuries-old tradition and places it within a larger historical and social context.

Native Americans have populated this continent for more than 10,000 years. The art and culture of the many American Indian nations is finally being put into the perspective of importance and beauty which it so deserves. This volume, a magnificent collection of full-color illustrations and incisive commentary presents the richness and diversity of America's earliest heritage. Tracing the development of American Indian art from hand-made tools of the Archaic Period to the flourishing of the many cultures in the early 1800s, to contemporary creations, this book features work from every part of the United States. Pottery, beadwork, weavings, jewelry, and contemporary paintings present an impressive picture of the artistic styles and accomplishments of Native Americans.
