For millennia, Native artists on Olympic Peninsula, in what is now northwestern Washington, have created coiled and woven baskets using tree roots, bark, plant stems - and meticulous skill. From the Hands of a Weaver presents the traditional art of basket making among the peninsula's Native peoples - particularly women - and describes the ancient, historic, and modern practices of the craft. Abundantly illustrated, this book also showcases the basketry collection of Olympic National Park.
