The projects are well laid out and easy to understand.

This is an old book, been around for years, but it is still one of the best for authentic methods of making Native American items.

I highly recommend this book to the Buckskinner or Native enthusiast.

W. Ben Hunt has captivated me. With intricate detailed drawings and scetches. His down home lingo about his life with Indian peoples. From the construction of teepee's, tomahawks, headresses, tomtom's, and everything in between. I am sure you will be as enthralled and excited as I was. I have learned and retained so much knowledge I have to recomend it to everyone interested.

This is an old book, been around for years, but it is still one of the best for authentic methods of making Native American items. This is replacing one I had years ago and learned so much from. A must for my library.

Format: Paperback
If you want a politically correct and modern Native American craft book, this is not it. Though the copyright is 1973, this book has a 50's feel and sketches. However, it is a wealth of information with crafts ranging from leather & rawhide making to building your own dogsled. With a simple change of materials theses scout projects go from Hollywood to historically correct. I found this book to have the best set of instructions and illustrations for making an Eastern style roach headdress despite the instructions calling for manila fibers (I used turkey beards). I highly recommend this book to the Buckskinner or Native enthusiast.

Great book with black and white pix for learning to create various Native American (especially plains style) and pioneering crafts from natural materials the old way. Set up in a nice vintage tone and format. Truly a treasure for anyone exploring survival skills, Native heritage or crafting items from nature!!! Highly recommend!

This is really a great book. I have had a copy since I was a teenager. I am not sure where I have it, but if I can't find it, then I will purchase another copy. Amazing book.
