Native American Moccasins : A Craft Manual

SKU: 4105-003-900

Since it was first published in 1969, George White's book on making American Indian moccasins has been the most comprehensive and diverse work on the subject, and it remains so today. The detailed instructions on measuring, pattern making, fitting and constructing moccasins allow the reader to produce 26 different types of moccasins that are authentic and that will fit the foot.

This expanded 3rd. Edition contains historical information on the thirty tribes covered, along with comprehensive new instructions on making Cheyenne style, hard sole moccasins and Northern Plains soft sole moccasins. The addition of 47 full color photographs of moccasins from many different tribes across North America makes this a wonderful reference for both collectors and craftworkers alike.

A last minute addition includes an 8 page essay by D. G. Wood entitled "Introduction to Rawhide, Buckskin & Leather", along with 12 period photographs of American Indians tanning hides and 8 illustrations of the tools they used.

Soft Cover, 88 pages, 44 color photos & illustrations, with 43 pages of moccasin patterns and instructions and 21 historic period photographs.
