First published in 1969, this expanded third edition is an excellent reference for both collectors and craftspeople. Detailed instructions for measuring, patternmaking, fitting, and construction guide the crafts worker in producing a wide variety of authentic Native American footwear that's tailored to each individual's foot. Readers are provided with a fascinating overview of the history of indigenous footwear in North America and an in-depth Introduction to rawhide, leather, and buckskin by G. D. Wood. Patterns for 28 moccasin types covering over 30 tribes - including the Assiniboine (Alberta/Manitoba), Kootenai (British Columbia), and Yellowknives (Northern Territories) of Canada - are featured along with new instructions for making Plains hard-sole, Northern Plains soft-sole, and Cherokee/Southeastern-style moccasins. Also included is a brief history of the tribes, additional resources, and website references. Forty-one full-color photographs accompany the patterns, along with 22 historic period photos of camp life, tanning hides, individual chiefs, and more.

About this Author

George M. White was a master carver and sculptor. Born in 1912, he grew up in Lewiston, Montana. Although he lost vision in one eye in a childhood accident, he was gifted in viewing the world with the eyes of an artist, geologist, and archaeologist. His intuitive understanding of how things were 100, 300, or 3,000 years ago led him to locate unrecorded buffalo jumps, sacred circles, and encampments throughout Montana.
