Offering the newest discoveries, this treasury reemphasises that Navajo pictorial weaving is a truly American folk art. Significant pictorials are organised into eight chapters covering all major categories, including these and many others: Birds, Flora, Fauna & Livestock; Transportation, Technology, the Railroad and Its Influence; Yeis, Yeibichais, and Corn Yeis; and Kachinas, Masks, and Images from the Hopi.
