Bizarrely, the Koshare dancers who feature as the main proponents of the beadwork appear to be a made-up group of Caucasians, similarly to Eagle Scouts, who have adopted the native culture as a devoted pastime. While what they did may be authentic, it's hard to be sure. The authors did indeed travel the country to collect real items from Native Americans, the number of tribes is paltry. The sources of investigation are also somewhat shallow: the Smithsonian, Field Museum in Chicago, Jefferson Memorial and several trading posts on reservations. Not exactly the cross-section the book wants to be.
However, the book is billed a "handicraft guide" and not as an exhaustive study of all that is Indian beading.

It is a very good book for beginners who may be overwhelmed by more extensive instructions yet it still contains ideas, patterns, and good pointers for the more experienced. There are numerous looming patterns and others in the back.
