    1. I found this at my library's bookstore for $1 and I snatch up anything to do with Native Americans. Reading the summary, about the inclusion of directions for ritual dances that allow you to get the feel of Indian life, I wondered what Native Americans think of that. It was cool that there was a list of all of the Native American tribes and names with the ways to pronounce them. I really liked the part about the author, how as a boy the Wild West Show set up near his home and the Indians would p [...]


    2. I loved this book as a kid. I got as far as making one pair of moccasins that didn't fit. Never could find turkey feathers in the SF suburbs in 1958.


    3. A childhood favorite of mine, this 1954 classic by W. Ben Hunt, legendary outdoorsman, and expert on Native American artistry and scoutcrafts. He was born in 1888 in Wisconsin and, as the story goes, saw Buffalo Bill's Wild West show when it came to his town. Intrigued by the Native American performers, he tried desperately to get their attention, but they had no time for a small boy. He had the brilliant idea of asking one of them if they wouldn't like fresh meat after all that time of living o [...]


    4. An excellent book for anyone with an interest in Indian crafts and lore. Particularly appealing to younger readers. Clearly written and illustrated by a man who lived in close proximity to woodland Indians in Wisconsin. I first bought and read this book in the 1950s and still have a recently acquired copy on a bookshelf in my office. (For a man with three grandsons, it's handy to have around.)




    5. Loved this book as it taught simple Indian crafts for scout type boys and I was one. I also had a very strong empathy for the plight of Native Americans from an early age.


    6. an old copy, shows how to use modern materials to produce replications of native american crafts, it does spend time on explainations
