Format: Paperback
Gibby's "Primitive clothing of the Native Americans" contains a lot of good 'how-to' info on making traditional and not-so-traditional buckskin garments. What differentiates this book from others is that it is not geared so much at replicators who want to make things exactly like they can be proven to have been made (museum quality replications), but more at regular folks who want to make buckskin clothing, and may or may not want to follow traditional styles.

Interesting and well written May 23 2009
By Pamela Stock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is very interesting and well written. It is a good resource for clothing and accessories for native people from before contact. If you are looking to research clothing after European contact this book will be disappointing. The articles of clothing it covers are made of natural materials such as grasses and other fibers and buckskin.

Not what hoped for. Sept. 6 2013
By Brett Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was hoping for more detailed instructions wih the patterns. This book shows how clothing parts were put together, but are very general in scope and very few give any type of usable measurements. This is more of a history of clothing types.

Not sure where the patterns are but it was interesting to review. Not helpful to making regalia for me. Sad

Not worth it. Feb. 10 2012
By Robert L. Allen Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are a few thing at the beginning that helps a little. There is a part on what the mountain man wore. There is a section that lets you know what the modern day person is up to wearing leather. The brain tanning is not that great and if you want to do it, please look for another source. There are great books and DVDs that are a much more into the brain tanning. I was thinking that this book was about clothing that was wore before white mans influence. Why is it that everybody thinks that the only thing that the Plains Indian man wore was a War shirt. The good thing that you will learn is how to tan with Ivory Soap.
