KIRKUS REVIEW

This is just the sort of fact book- and how to do it book- that those interested in the subject will like. It has everything, from a pronouncing chart on Indian names, through factual data on tribes, way of life, etc. But the main part of the book deals with the making of Indian costumes;- war bonnets, other types of head dress, breech clouts, leggings, shirts, vests, gauntlets, accessories, and so on. There is enough on the care of the materials that go into the making; identification of designs; the how-to of beadwork; specific dance costumes and basic dance steps. And a brief bit about girls' costumes. An activity book.
