SKU: 97057

North American Aboriginal Hide Tanning: The Act of Transformation and Revival, examines the methodology, tools and spiritual aspects of what was once almost a lost art. Over the course of research which has spanned some 30 years, the author has interviewed more than 40 tanners from the Northwest Territories to Oklahoma. The result, is a volume which includes chapters on 15 different tanners and their recipes, practical information on tools and techniques, as well as helpful tips for those interested in trying this traditional process for themselves. The book also features 165 color photographs and illustrations as well as 16 black and white photos.

Although not intended as a complete how-to manual, North American Aboriginal Hide-Tanning: The Act of Transformation and Revival is certain to whet the reader’s appetite for further investigation.
