    American Indian Baskets in Myth and Legend. "Like most material objects, Native American baskets are more than the sum of the processes involved in their making plus the uses for which they are intended. Objects acquire their principal value - their cultural �meaning�- through their intimate connections with human society. These relationships are often manifest in the stories people tell about themselves and their possessions. Human beings exercise an extraordinary capacity to weave stories that elevate life�s common elements into something special." Over 100 Native American societies provide 250 traditional selections, from creation myths to ghost stories. 280+ historic photographs, many published for the first time here. 210 pages.
