By Justin F. Farmer

This book presents a thorough survey of cradles, cradleboards, and cradle baskets from thirty-one tribes across California. Farmer visited public and private museums, private collections, and auction houses to document the characteristics of these sturdy and lovingly constructed baby baskets from cultures as diverse as the Klamath River, the eastern Sierra Nevada, and Baja. Full-color photographs display each cradle’s distinctive construction and decorative work.
