First published in 1969, this book is still considered the most comprehensive and diverse work on the subject today.
Detailed instructions for measuring, pattern-making, fitting and construction guide the craftsman in producing a wide variety of Native American footwear that are authentic and well-tailored to the individual’s foot.
This expanded edition contains patterns for 28 moccasin types covering over 30 tribes, along with historical information. Comprehensive new instructions on making Plains hard sole, Northern Plains soft sole, and Cherokee/Southeastern style moccasins are now included.
Forty-one full-color photographs of moccasins from many North American tribes, along with 22 historic period photos, make this book a wonderful reference for both collectors and craft workers.
