I have many hundreds of books and magazines on various types of woodworking, and this is one of my favorites. Theda Bassman has beautifully photographed some of the finest Native American art, by 25 of the best Hopi carvers of the late 1980s. She has also included interviews with each of these carvers. These interviews reveal the simplicity of the Hopi, the pervasive reverence of their culture, and a remarkably spiritual approach to an ever increasingly sophisticated art form.

Kachina are supern
