The 100 color images presented in this slim volume are highlights selected from the extensive collection of Native American artwork housed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Pieces range from ancient to contemporary and come from all corners of the North American continent. The volume is divided into six parts, the first devoted to modern Native American artwork, and the rest according to the geographic area in which the pieces originated. An introductory essay describing the region and its tribes precedes each section and descriptive text accompanies the high quality images. Ward, one of the museum's curators contributes a short history of the collection, noting that most works were acquired as gifts. The volume contains a map of North America as well as suggestions for further reading. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
