    This handbook is an exciting exploration of the arts, crafts and other accoutrements made and used by the Plains Indians and Mountain Men in the early 1800's.

Using this book's easy-to-follow instructions and illustrations, re-creation of these historical items becomes a simple task. The hobbyist is provided with a good, varied selection of items that can be made relatively inexpensively. The author has carefully researched each project and provides interesting historical background on the use and significance of each piece.

    Among the projects are: Kiowa Antler-Handled Awl, Mountain Man Ball Bag, Cheyenne War Club, Ute Bone-Handled Knife, Displaying a Beaver Pelt, Dream Catcher, Comanche Hoop Drum, Trapper's Possibles Bag, Ute Warrior's Coup Stick, Lakota Bone Necklace, Apache Prayer Stick, Crow Deer Skull Totem, Comanche Eagle Feather Fan, Ojos de Dios, Pawnee Ceremonial Shield, Mountain Man Powder Horn, Kiowa Antler Totem, Lakota Peace Pipe, Trapper's Knife Sheath, Blackfoot Ceremonial Case, Minniconjou Dance Rattle, Oklahoma Plains Indian Flute, Horn Hat Rack, Apache Cloth Dye, Pistol Holster and much more.

    A truly wonderful book for those interested in the history of the Plains frontier and for those whose talents lead them to make things with their hands.

    A must for Scouts, Mountain Men and Indian Hobbyists.
