A completely new and comprehensive look at the traditional tipi, "Tipis, Tepees, Teepees" examines the history, evolution, and construction of tipis since the 1840s. Tipis can be found all over the world in dozens of cultures. Currently, these fascinating dwellings are experiencing a resurgence in popularity because of their unique qualities: they are easy to transport, comfortable to live in for long periods of time, and weather resistant. They effectively capture the mythical Western experience. From the first tipis made of buffalo or elk hide to the canvas duck tipis of today, Linda Holley explores the many different methods of tipi construction and includes dozens of drawings, photographs, illustrations, and diagrams that show how to construct, erect, decorate, and transport a tipi.
